Dinosaur Jr. Cover Phoenix Single ‘Entertainment’ [Listen]

It took nearly four years for Phoenix to follow their breakthrough album ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix’ with ‘Entertainment,’ the lead single off their forthcoming follow-up disc, ‘Bankrupt!’ By contrast, in the four weeks since the song’s release, Dinosaur Jr. have managed to record and release their own version.

Dubbed a “remix” but more accurately described as a straight-up cover, the Dino stab at ‘Entertainment’ finds J Mascis and the boys turning in a slow-burning and sedate take, big on melody but short on the fiery energy that drives the original. Instead, it sounds more like Mascis downed some Xanax and chased it with a couple of shots. (Which is quite dangerous and definitely not something you should try at home!)
