Mascis keeps the Heartbreaker’s pace, but shreds about twice as hard.

Like its predecessors, Elastic Days was recorded at J's own Bisquiteen studio. Mascis does almost all his own stunts, although Ken Miauri (who also appeared on Tied to a Star) plays keyboards and there are a few guest vocal spots. These include old mates Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), and Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion, et., as well as the newly added voice of Zoë Randell (Luluc) among others. But the show is mostly J's and J's alone. He laughs when I tell him I'm surp. maybe best solo yet. The old guy makes another effortlessly beautiful album. Maybe he grinds somewhere to create these songs but the result is so natural and casual that it blows my mind. It must be the bulldog.
Fact: There is no song that J Mascis can’t cover. Whether it’s Mazzy Star or Led Zeppelin or The Cure, the Dinosaur Jr. frontman has the ability to marry his melancholy voice to any FM staple, capturing the emotionalism with the ease it takes to de-cream a Cadbury egg. Well, now he’s back to prove as much again with his cover of Tom Petty’s Don’t Do Me Like That. One of the punchier tracks off 1979’s Damn the Torpedoes, Mascis surprisingly keeps the poppy cadence, though this sucker drips with angst.
