Dinosaur Jr guitar savant J Mascis is no stranger to deliciously awkward interviews, so putting him head-to-head with “Portlandia” star Fred Armisen’s near-lookalike character Candace — co-proprietor of the Women and Women First feminist bookstore — was an inspired bit of promotion by Jagjaguwar Records in advance of the band’s I Bet On Sky album, which arrives Sept. 4. Check it out.
