Today proves, yet again, that Dinosaur Jr.’s ingenuity knowns no restrictions. In their most recent stint, J Mascis and company paired up with Skullcandy to create some eye-catching, grape juice-colored headphones. Along with the headphones, customers will receive a previously unreleased single, “The Only Other Way” and a never-before-heard live recording of “The Lung.”
While the headphones—stamped with a photo of a young girl posing with a cigarette—are quite neat, the real winner of this combo deal is “The Only Other Way.” J Mascis’s casual and effortless vocals, accompanied by his elusive fingers flying up and down the scale, make this single nothing short of sheer Dinosaur Jr.-approved bliss. Check it out for yourself, below.
