Here is Sweep It Into Space, the fifth new studio album cut by
Dinosaur Jr.. during the 13th year of their rebirth. Originally scheduled
for issue in mid 2020, this record’s temporal trajectory was thwarted by
the coming of the Plague. But it would take more than a mere Plague to
tamp down the exquisite fury of this trio when they are fully dialed-in.
And Sweep It Into Space is a masterpiece of zoned dialing.
Recorded, as usual, at Amherst’s Biquiteen, the sessions for Sweep It
Into Space began in the late Autumn of 2019, following a West Coast/
South East tour. The only extra musician used this time with Kurt Vile.
Indeed, Sweep It Into Space is a very cool album. As is typical, Lou
Barlow writes and sings two of the album’s dozen tunes and Murph’s
pure-Flinstonian drumming drives the record like a go cart from Hell.
Lou’s songs here are as elegant as always.
But there are very few moments where you wouldn’t know you were
hearing Dinosaur Jr. in blindfolded needle drop. They have a signature
sound as sure as the Stooges or Sonic Youth or Discharge ever did. They
continue to expand their personal universe with Sweep It Into Space,
without ever losing their central core.
