Dinosaur Jr. have just announced a six date tour reliving their classic 1988 album, Bug (SST Records). The short concert series will begin in lead singer J Mascis' hometown of Northampton, MA, travel down the east coast for four more dates and end in London at the Alexandra Palace. The tour marks the second reuniting of the original Dino Jr. members, J Mascis (guitar/lead singer), Lou Barlow (bassist/singer) and Murph (Emmett Patrick Murphy - Drums) since 2005, when they re-released their first three albums, Dinosaur, You're Living All Over Me, and Bug (Merge Records) and the single "Freak Scene" (Sweet Nothing).
The Canadian indie-pop quintet, Stars (Soft Revolution), have released a video for their latest single, "Changes". Directed by Jaron Albertin, this journey through Toronto's Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre follows a nude woman running, dancing and exploring herself, physically and soulfully.
Spinner.com reported lead singer Amy Millan saying, "This video is based around the idea of changes that we feel deeply and personally, but which also seem to bear the weight of the world." She continued, "The dancer's changes are strange and otherworldly. We watch as change is forced upon her, and how she learns to live through it, as fate demands."
