elastic days (2018/SUB POP)

ALTERNATIVE-ROCK. Like its predecessors, "elastic days" was recorded at J. MASCIS' own Bisquiteen studio. MASCIS does almost all his own stunts, although Ken Miauri (who also appeared on "tied to a star") plays keyboards and there are a few guest vocal spots. These include old mates Pall Jenkins (BLACK HEART PROCESSION), and Mark Mulcahy (MIRACLE LEGION, etc.), as well as the newly added voice of Zoë Randell (LULUC) among others. This is a lazy man's shorthand, but it still rings true. "elastic days" brims with great moments. Epic hooks that snare you in surprisingly subtle ways, guitar textures that slide against each other like old lovers, and structures that range from a neo-power-ballad to jazzily-canted West Coasty post-psych. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
