We’re about a month away from Dinosaur Jr.‘s next studio album I Bet on Sky, due out September 18th via Jagjaguarwar. Today, the band dropped an exclusive interview between J Mascis and Candace, AKA Portland’s pesky owner of Women & Women First, AKA Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen. As per tradition, the Mascis interview oozes with awkward tension, but Candace keeps things in perspective. To be honest, it’s probably the best interview we’ve seen with the iconic axeman. Watch it below.

Want to talk books with Mascis? The band’s about to hit the road for a fall tour. Consult the itinerary below and start penciling in some questions — bring a wig, too.
