“Sweep It Into Space”
Dinosaur Jr.

“Sweep It Into Space” is Dinosaur Jr.’s first new collection of music since 2016 and continues what is perhaps the greatest “second act” of any band ever.

All things considered, the trio continue to expand their personal universe, without ever losing their core.
