After 36 years, most Dinosaur Jr fans know what to expect from new albums, but sometimes they throw a curveball. "Take It Back," from the imminent Sweep it Into Space, is a wonderful surprise, set to a playful, bouncy keyboard riff that throws you off guard while providing one of the catchier moments we've had from the indie rock icons in a while. The fuzz pedals and wailing still come, but those elements aren't the stars of the show. The video for the song, though, is classic Dino Jr, full of psychedelic stop-motion animated lumps of clay. You can watch "Take it Back" below.
Sweep it Into Space, which was co-produced by Kurt Vile (who also plays on a lot of the album), is out this Friday via Jagjaguwar.
