DOWNLOAD: J. Mascis - "Not Enough" (MP3)

Sebadoh at Pitchfork 2008 (more by Elizabeth Weinberg)

Dinosaur Jr haven't called it quits (again), but their members are fully engaged in their own separate projects in the coming months.

Lou Barlow's Sebadoh will hit the road in early February for a set of West Coast dates with Quasi followed by a set of East Coast dates in early April that aren't fully announced yet. Those dates include a pair in NYC at Bowery Ballroom on April 9th and 10th. Tickets for both shows (9th here, 10th here) are currently (as of noon) on AMEX presale, and go on regular sale at noon on 1/21.

Meanwhile, J Mascis is prepping his solo effort Several Shades of Why for release on Sub Pop. The LP, available for preorder now, which is "nearly all acoustic" is his first official solo effort and features ten tracks including "Not Enough" available for download above. J Mascis has a few dates of his own in the coming months too, and like the album they will be acoustic. First he's playing with Kurt Vile and then with The Black Heart Procession. Those include NYC shows with Kurt Vile on March 24th at Mercury Lounge and March 25th at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for Mercury are currently on AMEX presale (as of noon) and go on regular sale at noon on Friday (1/21). Tickets for Music Hall if Williamsburg also go on sale Friday.

All currently known tour dates and an excellent/in-depth interview with J Mascis is below...
