Dinosaur Jr. Enter Vanity Headphones Game, Share New Jam ‘The Only Other Way’

Dinosaur Jr. The Only Other Way Skullcandy

The Sub Pop posse have been getting their crossbrand on of late — in honor of the iconic Seattle indie label’s 25th-ish anniversary celebration (happening right now atop the damned Space Needle!), they just rolled out some collaborative kicks with the TOMS Shoes people. And before that, J Mascis pimped his name out for some charitable pimp-purple vegan mocs. Now that man’s beloved band Dinosaur Jr. are teaming up with headphone barons Skullcandy.

The band has worked with the company to design a custom pair of purple (duh) aviator-style jam-cans (seen above) to be available on the Skullcandy site beginning July 14, according to Consequence of Sound. A collector’s set will include a limited-edition 7-inch single comprising an unreleased slice o’ gnarl called “The Only Other Way” and a live version of “The Lung” from the 1987 masterpiece You’re Living All Over Me. Purple and green splatter wax, natch.

Nevertheless, the rest of us are welcome to stream and download the songs for free, right here, so get to it already:
