Dinosaur Jr, circa 2012

French electropop favorites Phoenix return next month with their fifth studio album Bankrupt!, and they’ve just released what they’re billing as a “remix” of lead single “Entertainment” by none other than Dinosaur Jr. But, as Spin notes, it’s actually a straight-up cover of what had been a fairly upbeat, poppy number. In the hands of J Mascis and Co., it’s now a mellow, melodic jam. Check out Dinosaur Jr’s cover as well as the original track below.
