Dinosaur Jr’s Knocked Around and a heavy dose of guitar schralping

Dinosaur Jr Knocked Around video

Dinosaur Jr kicked off a US tour this week and to mark the occasion released a new video for Knocked Around that was filmed on their last tour.

Taken from the alt rock band’s outstanding 2016 album Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not, Knocked Around is half mellow and contemplative, half thumpingly propulsive guitar work.

Or, as Otis Bperiod – who filmed the video – put it: “It is everything amazing about Dinosaur Jr: soft yet hard with J’s awesome sense of vocal melody and a heavy dose of guitar schralping! I shot the entire video live while on the most recent US tour, and in slow-mo and black and white to capture the way I see tour life.

“Dinosaur Jr. had no idea I was doing this, so what you see is very honest and all live, shot at many venues across the US with different types of cameras. ‘Knocked Around’ is my take, and what I get from the song about being far away from family.”
