We're not going to lie to you, we were pretty disappointed with Phoenix's first single off Bankrupt!, "Entertainment", primarily due to all of the hype surrounding the record. But after hearing J Mascis' Dinosaur Jr. "remix" of said song, we are singing to a different tune (pun totally intended).
Mascis dissected the once blindingly speedy tune, and transformed it into a completely unrecognizable, emotional ballad. Oh, and the solo that comes in around 2:30 reminds us why he's known as one of the greatest guitarists in the game.
Unfortunately for Phoenix, on Bankrupt!, J Mascis will not be.
Bankrupt! is out April 23rd via Glassnote.
