Dinosaur Jr new single Pieces and B side Houses to be released on Oct 13th 2009

Dinosaur Jr will release pieces as their new single on October 13th as download only and a tour only 7 inch vinyl version.

The B side is their version of folk-psych singer Elyse Weinberg’s 1968 song “Houses” which featured my guitar hero Neil Young. You can listen to Dinosaurs’s version below.


Dinosaur Jr seem intent on garnering the title of “Hardest working band” as their mammoth touring schedule shows no sign of abatement. I received an email from them last night listing their schedule for north america. Their performance in new york with sonic youth is already sold out.
