Soundtrack: Dinosaur Jr. - Don’t Pretend You Didn’t Know
I hadn’t thought much about Dinosaur Jr. since the mid-90s. Why would I have? They broke up in 1997, and got back together without much fanfare in 2005. But the group’s latest album, and particularly this lead track, hits me with a jolt. It belongs in 2012, but feels like 1994. It’s a thread strung through a wormhole, a reminder that even as you get older (and older), you haven’t changed as dramatically as you might think. And neither has the world around you.
