Lou Barlow tweets Dinosaur Jr recording sessions, reissues Sentridoh’s ‘Weed Forestin’

The mighty Dinosaur Jr is back in the recording studio, working on its follow-up to 2009’s Farm — and the original lineup’s third effort since reuniting — according to bassist Lou Barlow’s daily Twitter account of the sessions, which includes an apparent admonition from the band’s management to “stop tweeting.”

Barlow’s updates — via @TheLouBarlow, and posted below — began last Thursday (“got a bass sound… start jamming tomorrow”), continuing each day with accounts of endless run-throughs (“did 20+ takes of song #1, none a keeper but j says o.k.”) and his efforts to get the band to learn his songs (“suggest learning one of my songs, murf says ‘meh..”).

There also are references to what appears to be a new J Mascis solo album (“j mixes jam psych muzak solo lp”) and an apparent attempt by Dinosaur Jr’s managers to curb Barlow’s tweeting (dino mgmt email says stop tweeting? ha!”).

Barlow also has been busy of late preparing a new multiformat reissue of Weed Forestin, which he originally released on cassette in 1987 under the Sentridoh name while still in Dinosaur Jr. The newly remastered, 23-track album is available for pre-order in digital, vinyl, cassette and CD-R formats, plus a deluxe LP/cassette/USB package that includes a cassette copy of the bonus collection Child of the Apocalypse. 

For a full rundown of the formats, to pre-order and to sample a remastered version of “Temporary Dream,” head over to Sentriodh’s Bandcamp page.
