Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis and Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon have teamed up for a new two-track single, Abstract Blues.

Comprising a title track – the upbeat, lead guitar-heavy Abstract Blues – and the chaotic, distortion-laden Slow Boy, the short-player sees the pair of eminent guitar icons put together their decades of combined riff-writing experience for a six-minute masterclass in alt-rock. Check out the two tracks below.
