Dino Might: Dinosaur Jr. Reissues Farm for 15th Anniversary

A Fresh Crop from the ‘Farm’

Dinosaur Jr. is celebrating the 15th anniversary of their seminal 2009 album, Farm, with a special reissue. Set to drop on August 16 via Jagjaguwar, this reissue isn’t just a simple reprint—it’s a collector’s dream with a few added bonuses. The new vinyl edition includes four bonus tracks that were initially available only on a bonus CD, featuring a standout cover of the Zombies’ “Whenever You’re Ready,” which has been released digitally today. Listen to it below.

Return to the Roots

Farm holds a special place in Dinosaur Jr.’s discography, marking their second album following their 2007 reunion with Beyond. The album reunites the original trio: J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph, a lineup that fans had been eagerly waiting to see back in action. Mascis took the reins as producer, recording the album at his own Bisquiteen Studio in Amherst, Massachusetts. The result was a raw, energetic sound that echoed their early days while showcasing their evolution as musicians. Pre-order the album here.
