Dinosaur Jr.: Rediscovering the Gnarl

The whine abides. Almost 30 years after the members of Dinosaur Jr. began playing music together, the trio’s peerless roar of anger, melancholy, and effects-pedal ferocity sounds more beautifully wracked than ever. J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph may not be intimate confidants, but the noise they create as a unit is an elemental force of nature.
