It seems appropriate that guitar hero J Mascis has finally grown a beard just in time for his first solo acoustic album since 1996’s Martin + Me.  According to Sub Pop’s press sheet, the album features J with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, some fuzz and a tambourine.  However, the following awesome folks all contributed in some small way: Kurt Vile, Sophie Trudeau (A Silver Mount Zion), Kurt Fedora (long-time collusionist), Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), Paulo Zappoli (Black Heart Procession), Matt Valentine (The Golden Road), and Suzanne Thorpe (Wounded Knees).  The first single, “Not Enough”, is pretty much J in Neil Young mode which feels as effortless as it is glorious.

Several Shades of Why is out 3/15 on Sub Pop.
