Purchasable with gift card. Buy Digital Album. 10 USD or more. Black Vinyl LP. RecordVinyl Digital Album. Includes unlimited streaming of Several Shades of Why via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. But Several Shades of Why is easily his most accomplished and best-crafted acoustic album to date, as well as one of his most tightly focused collections in years. But Several Shades of Why is different. It's his first solo album of all original material and it's almost entirely acoustic. Here, the grey-haired 45 year old's weathered husk of a voice is close-mic'd, as if he's drawling mere inches away from your head at all times. Mascis had a son in 2007. Though dour, Mascis' sleeve avatar is also kind of cute. Several Shades of Why gives us that softer, gentler J Mascis. But it's not kids' stuff- these are lullabies for adults, offered up with a compassion that doesn't come easy. Songs in album J Mascis - Several Shades Of Why 2011. J Mascis - Listen To Me.

Several shades of why I can't go back, it's faster Don't expect it 'cause the ending's a disaster Nothing nothing nothing man, a little laughter With my time With my time. Gone at it the wrong way Thought I'd find out but I missed it If I make it through I'll run and stop the twistin' Way I steered us off'll lose it just to give in Hell may not dwell on the dead How about the living With my time With my time. More on Genius. Several Shades of Why Track Info. Several Shades of Why J Mascis. Listen to Me. Genre: Alternative Rock. J Mascis delivers one of his most personal recordings yet through an album which is quite simple, stripped back and mainly acoustic. I don't know if it's just me being silly though but I can't help but feel bored by this album. It isn't much new as an indie rock record and it's especially painful knowing what Mascis is capable of when he is utilizing a far more heavier set of sounds.
