From the off it’s undeniable who you are listening to; that signature sound draws you in with seething riffs and animalistic drums, it can only be Dinosaur Jr. However, Sweep It Into Space undulates through driving rhythms to the more downbeat and intriguing tracks like To Be Waiting or Garden. The inclusion of Kurt Vile on I Ran Away is immediately evident, and arguably one of the highlights of the record.

It’s the ear worm worthy nature of Sweep It Into Space that sets it apart, you’ll find yourself humming along from the first listen. Hook-laden doesn’t do it justice, from the exceptional solo in Hide Another Round to the dour closer of You Wonder, it has it all!
