J Mascis live, what more do you need to know?
The frontman for Dinosaur Jr has just released Elastic Days, his fourth solo studio album and third for legendary indie label Subpop. Its his first solo release since Tied To A Star in 2014.
“[Elastic Days is] an indie rock fundamentalists tour of how it’s done. “It” being defined as writing the best folksy, electric and acoustic guitar tinged songs this side of rock music.” – Alternative Nation
Mascis played all the instruments on the album which also features guest appearances from Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession) and Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Zoe Randell of Aussies Luluc.
The video for the albums title track, the title track, features the tragic comedy of cabaret comedian Dina Martina. Says J of the video “I’ve been a big Dina Martina fan for a long time. I’ve seen her perform many times over the years. I’m glad that I got her to do this video before she becomes an untouchable superstar. I am amazed at how the video came out, I’m so psyched.”
On tour Mascis plays an acoustic guitar plugged into an amp with his usual main boggling array of pedals and effects. Its still loud.
“… big alternative hits like a stripped back ‘Get Me’ proved favourites, with Mascis’ liberal use of effect pedals and looping providing a deceptive full-band sound at times.” – Scenestar Sydney review.
Tia Gostelow emerged at just 16 years old when she wrote “State Of Art” in 2015. Since a few years have passed, the 19 year old indie rock star has achieved more than she could have imagined.
With the support of Triple J, Tia has been lucky enough to have six high rotation songs added from her recently released debut album Thick Skin, produced by Konstantin Kersting (The Belligerents) alongside Album Feature of the Week, and Like a Version, and when we say lucky we really mean well deserved. Not one to shy away from hard work or discipline to achieve her goals - Tia has reached a number of childhood dreams in such a short period of time that proves hard work can go a long way.
After launching her own independent record label "Lovely Records", signing with Anti Fragile records outside Australia and New Zealand, landing a world wide publishing deal with NativeTounge, been nominated for a handful of Queensland Music Awards,and toured as support for Ball Park Music, San Cisco and The Rubens, the success for this talented young lady just keeps on coming. Tia has been added to a multitude ofSpotify playlists all over the world, jumped on board for the national Falls Festival tour, accepted to the bill for 2019 SXSW Music and Conference in Texas, and showcases at Fairgrounds Festival, Jungle love Festival, Lostlands Festival and One Hot Night.
With the success of her recent album launch parties - Tia will set off on a mammoth tour, headlining a number of shows with support from the brimming talent, MANE and Benny Nelson, including regional areas along the east coast beginning in February 2019.
