Dinosaur Jr. Does Phoenix Better Than Phoenix

    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.

    The original:

    Bankrupt! is out April 23rd via Glassnote.
