Dinosaur Jr. covers Phoenix’s new single

ALEX YOUNG/Consequence of Sound

As fans of Jack White, The Clash, and Ryan Adams can all attest, sometimes the cover version proves far better than the original. Such is the case for Dinosaur Jr.’s reworking of the new Phoenix single, “Entrainment”. Maybe it’s just the early morning fog, but J. Mascis whining “Entertainment / Show them what you do with me / When everyone here knows better” just feels more convincing. And those dirty guitar solos, they’re just great. Take a listen below (via SPIN).
