J Mascis is, of course, the leader of Massachusetts alt-rockers Dinosaur Jr., but he has taken part in a series of other projects, among them the stoner-rock band Witch, hardcore punks Deep Wound, college rockers The Lemonheads and hard-rocking power-poppers Sweet Apple. Beyond all that, he’s had an extensive solo career. Mascis’ latest album, Elastic Days, is a more introspective, acoustic-based collection of songs in contrast to the loud distortion of early Dinosaur Jr. Fuzzy guitar solos well up occasionally on such tunes as “See You at the Movies,” but the overall mood is even mellower on such stripped-down ballads as “Sky Is All We Had.” There’s a hint of Tom Petty’s rough drawl as Mascis croons softly over these laid-back songs.
