Farm is set for release on June 23rd and is the first release from the reunited line up of J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph since 2007’s acclaimed Beyond.
Early praise for Farm:
“J Mascis proves he’s still one of indie rock’s greatest guitarists.” – Rolling Stone
“Farm sounds like old-school Dino – gnarlier, snarlier, and better than it has any business being.” –SPIN
“ ‘I Want You to Know,’ from forthcoming album Farm, hits the ground thudding, Murph and Lou Barlow filling the tune’s fat bottom with a healthy amount of swing (and, yes, swagger) as Mascis power-chords his blues away…8.0 / Best New Music” – Pitchfork
