J Mascis Turned Shoe Designer, PLUS Dinosaur Jr. Remix Phoenix

J Mascis has joined forces with Keep, a vegan footwear company, to create a custom shoe. It is purple, of course, and features an embroidered stripe patterned after J’s guitar strap. COOL! You can check out the shoe above. Head to KEEP to pre-order your own pair, which come complete with a 7″ picture disc that features a previously unreleased J Mascis track. A part of the proceeds will go to support Amma, the non-profit organization of Mata Amritandamayi.

WATCH // Dinosaur Jr. Premieres “Pierce The Morning Rain” Video

What happens when you combine American suburbia, one heck of a stereo system and Henry Rollins? An awesome Dinosaur Jr. music video. Directed by Emmy-winny comedy writer and director Scott Jacobson (Bob’s Burgers, Saturday Night Live), “Pierce the Morning Rain” stars actor James Urbaniak (Homeland, The Venture Brothers) and comedian Maria Bamford as your average, middle-aged couple whose lives are transformed by playing Dinosaur Jr. as loudly as technology allows. You can watch the video at SPIN or above.

Here’s a welcomed sight! It’s a photo (courtesy of Ray Gordon) of J Mascis and Carrie Brownstein hanging out. Just a little preparation for the new Portlandia episode airing on Friday, January 25th.
