Impassioned latest single, the second from their ninth studio album for influential alternative rockers, Dinosaur Jr

'Pieces' is classic Dinosaur Jr – great sound that connects directly with the soul. 'Pieces' is the second single to be lifted off of Dinosaur Jr’s ninth studio album 'Farm'. Starting out in the 1980s, Dinosaur Jr became highly influential in the alternative rock of the 1990s. Frontman J Mascis has explained the concept behind the group as “ear- bleeding country”, also the title of their best of compilation. The latest single is in keeping with this raw, natural and inspired sound. Beginning with J Mascis’s impassioned rousing electric guitar, 'Pieces' is melodic and beautiful. Mascis’ gravelly vocals are evocative, strongly conveying the emotion of the music. In this song about troubled love, feedback and great guitar solos by Mascis are accompanied by the vigorous bass of Lou Barlow and the steady drumming of Emmett Murphy. Together they are a band fully in synch, as Dinosaur Jr continues to put out music on the highest level.
