Dinosaur Jr. – Down On The Farm In Oz March 2010

The evergreen Dinosaur Jr will perform a series of headline shows in Australia throughout March 2010 and will also take pole position at both the Golden Plains Festival in Meredith, Victoria, and also at the debut of Brisbane’s Lost Weekend Festival.

Earlier this year Dinosaur Jr released Farm, their most critically lauded effort since 1988’s breakthrough effort, Bug. Featuring all three original Dinosaur Jr members: J Mascis, Lou Barlow & Murph, Farm captures the energy of a band 20 years their junior backed by the superior songwriting skills of both Mascis and Barlow in what many believe to be one of the band’s finest works and an early contender for album of the year.

Not being content with releasing one of the stand out albums of the year, Dinosaur Jr also saw fit to release our pick for video of the year with Over it.
