J Mascis "I've Been Thinking"

J Mascis 'I've Been Thinking'
Earlier this year, J Mascis stepped away from the swirling distortion of those last few Dinosaur Jr. albums and issued his folky, mostly acoustic solo set Several Shades of Why. If you wanted more soft stuff from the iconic alt-rocker, check the sweet and simple "I've Been Thinking."

A spritely acoustic run soars atop a one-two drum shuffle and Mascis's patented weary wail on the number, which previously appeared on the Japanese edition of Several Shades of Why. It will now be available to North American audiences as the B-side to his upcoming "Circle" seven-inch single.

The A-side is a cover of an Edie Brickell number Mascis has been playing on the road. You can nab the mini-platter on November 22 through Sub Pop.
