J Mascis and Built to Spill dudes make electronic Dinosaur Jr. songs for Record Store Day

While it was pretty dope when Built to Spill’s Doug Martsch and Brett Nelson re-imagined some of their popular BTS songs as electronic 80s jams (under the moniker The Electronic Anthology Project), things are going to get a lot more Mascis-y (Mascisian?). For Record Store Day (April 21), Martsch, Nelson, and Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis will appear on a limited-to-500 purple vinyl with Mascis providing vocals to some of ye olde beloved Dino Jr. songs. Those of you who always wished to hear Mascis doin’ his damn thang over Prince-inspired beats, well… this isn’t quite that, but almost.

For those saying “Boohoo! I don’t have a record player!”, first of all, calm the fuck down! Second, breathe easy ‘cause you know (just like the initial recording) a digital release is likely in order.
