Rock legends Dinosaur Jr. will release their newest studio LP I Bet On Sky this week and though the record may arrive a quarter century after their college radio classic You’re Living All Over Me, it certainly doesn’t disappoint. They’ve perfected their mix of angst-filled/apathetic vocals and heavily distorted guitars, while even adding an upbeat tempo to the mix here. It’s almost cheerful, really.
 
The highlight of the album is the frenzied “Pierce The Morning Rain” which you can listen to below:
 

 
Or stream the whole album over on NPR. You can also check out the band’s upcoming tour dates, which include multiple shows with Shearwater and a special You’re Living All Over Me with some special guests.
