It’s a familiar story: girl falls for boy from the wrong side of the tracks, girl loves Dinosaur Jr., girl loses boy, and Tim Heidecker is girl’s gold-chained single dad with a butt cut who makes his breakfast in a towel, paints model airplanes as a hobby and cannot bear the heartbreak of his baby.Funny Or Die premiered their poignant and hilarious music video for “Watch the Corners” today starring Tim Heidecker of Adult Swim’s Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and the R. Alverson film The Comedy.Dinosaur Jr’s new album, I Bet On Sky, will be released on September 18th, 2012.
One of Portland’s top feminist bookstore professionals, Candace of Women & Women First, spoke with J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. about the upcoming record, “I Bet On Sky.” Watch their illuminating interview below.
“I Bet On Sky” will be available September 18th on Jagjaguwar Records. It will be available on PIAS Records September 17 in the U.K., September 12 in Japan, September 14 in Germany and Australia, and various dates that week depending on location.

Dinosaur Jr. brings you the first single off their forthcoming album, I Bet On Sky. Titled “Watch The Corners,” the track premiered at Rolling Stone, who posted the song along with an interview with J Mascis. “I guess on this record, I wasn’t as worried if we could play the songs live. [On] the other two records [2007's Beyond and 2009's Farm], I was thinking of it being more songs that we could play live and tour more. I guess that’s what’s kind of different about this album: I just did what I felt would sound good,” tells Mascis. Read the full interview and stream “Watch The Corners” HERE.
Dinosaur Jr. begins their US tour in August. See full list of tour dates HERE.
I Bet On Sky, Dinosaur Jr.’s third album since the reunion of original trio J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph, will be released September 17 in the UK & later that week in Europe via PIAS and September 18 in North America via Jagjaguwar Records.
