Mascis has just released Elastic Days, his third solo studio album for Sub Pop, and first solo release since Tied To A Star in 2014. Mascis played all the instruments on the album which also features guest appearances from Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Zoe Randell of Aussies Luluc.
His last solo shows in WA were memorably as the support act for Mogwai at Perth Festival, and were unforgettable nights all round.
Elastic Days is out now. J Mascis plays Badlands Bar on Friday, March 8 and Settlers Tavern on Saturday, March 9. Tickets on sale now.
