The loudest guy in the world came to the Tiny Desk to perform some of his quietest music.

Dinosaur Jr.‘s J Mascis, for years a guy who’s turned my ears red, showed up armed with just an acoustic guitar. I even had an amp for that guitar all lined up, but he decided to not plug in.

So we get a rare treat: a low-key J Mascis, performing emotional songs from his new album “Tied To A Star”, as well as Dinosaur Jr.‘s classic “Little Fury Things.” If you think Mascis draws all his power from sheer volume, this ought to convince you otherwise.

Set List

  • “Stumble”
  • “Little Fury Things”
  • “Drifter/Heal The Star”
