Best known as the remote frontman of the influential indie trio Dinosaur Jr., J Mascis has also pursued a solo career, and been an occasional producer and film composer. While his work with Dinosaur Jr. is dominated by his lackadaisical vocals and crushing, high-volume guitar work, much of his solo material has seen him exploring different directions. Mascis revisited his back catalog in acoustic form on 1996's Martin + Me, and he cut nuanced, semi-acoustic music with a more personal lyrical perspective on 2011's Several Shades of Why and 2014's Tied to a Star. (Though Mascis' louder side made itself felt on two albums with his project J Mascis + the Fog, 2000's More Light, and 2002's Feel So Free.)
