Dinosaur Jr.'s 'Farm' cover art: Snap judgment

Dinosaurjr_lHere’s what I’m getting from the just-released cover art for Farm, Dinosaur Jr.’s second album since reuniting its original lineup a few years back: Guitarist J Mascis and bassist Lou Barlow are magnificent Ents from indie-rock Middle-Earth, bestriding the smog-choked metropolis that is modern music. I’ll assume drummer Murph is another Ent looming just outside this shot. Either that, or J, Lou, and Murph are the three wide-eyed spirit-children/hobbits being cradled by Treebeard and Leaflock over there.

Regardless, I hope we can all agree that this is an awesome image, and that more album art in general should incorporate trippy Lord of the Rings-inspired sketches. Between this cover and the mind- and eardrum-blowing partial set I caught from Dinosaur Jr. last week at SXSW, I’m officially psyched for Farm‘s June 23 release. How about you?

    These trees were my friends. I’d known many of them since they were saplings. Saruman! A wizard should know better. A WIZARD SHOULD KNOW BETTER.
