To help promote Several Shades of Why, the forthcoming solo album from Dinosaur Jr mastermind J Mascis, the folks at Sub Pop Records have posted this rather odd interview. The four-minute video, seen above, features some woman named Maureen interviewing Mascis and getting a tour of his home studio. The guitarist, of course, isn’t the most talkative person, so it’s a somewhat uncomfortable exchange. Several Shades of Why arrives March 15.
