New Jason Loewenstein Album

So it would appear I have been asleep for the past few weeks as this completely passed me by (I wish I could care about social media…I just don’t!).  Jason appears to be releasing his first new solo album proper since 2002’s At Sixes and Sevens.  I know nothing about it other than he has put…

Sebadoh KCRtroubleyou

On October the 17th (Cassette Store Day) Shrimper are dropping a couple of cassettes to celebrate their 25th anniversary, one of which is a live Sebadoh cassette from 1999 recorded on air for KCRW.  The cassette is limited to 300 copies and available to buy here and here. Thanks to Simone for the heads up!

Brace the Wave arrived

“A stunning solo effort…7.8 out of 10”   This quote is from the man himself and who am I to disagree? Last week my Domino Records LP turned up so here I sit dear reader listening to Brace the Wave.  The ‘selfie’ photo is actually a rather nice pink Polaroidesque photo of Lou sitting stroking his…

Brace the Wave Pre-Order

Yesterday Joyful Noise started pre-orders on Lou’s upcoming solo album Brace the Wave.  The VIP edition is limited to 500 copies and comes on a really nice green and pink mixed vinyl (Or marbled pink and sea foam if you’re reading the nonsense in the press release ;-).  There are of course also alternative editions including…

Brace the Wave – solo album coming in September

Lou has stated in a recent interview with Motif that his first solo album since 2009’s Goodnight Unknown will be coming out in September 2015.  There are currently no more details other than it will be titled Brace the Wave though Lou does mention it will be followed up by the recording of the next…

Tres Padres 7″

If you, like me, follow Sebadoh closely you are probably aware that Lou recorded a 7″ under the moniker Tres Padres with Dale Crover (The Melvins) and Imaad Wasif (New Folk Implosion).  It was recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio and was originally supposed to have been a charity 7″. After being announced it then went very…

Sebadoh Discography

For sometime the internet’s best Sebadoh discography was the Sebadoh & Suchlike site.  Unfortunately it has not been updated in a number of years which I thought was a shame with the band now back and active so I’ve tried to pull a new site together which is a little more up to date. WordPress…

Sebadoh playing in a town near you…perhaps.

I don’t get to quite as many gigs as I used to.  Don’t get me wrong I get to the odd gig still and always try to squeeze in at least one trip to a festival in the summer but nevertheless I’m getting old.  Most Sebadoh fans, unless relatively new to the sounds of Lou…

Collecting…What is it good for? (reprise)

I’ve picked up on this before but once upon a time it appeared to be virtually impossible to  get hold of limited import records that were long since out of print. I picked up the record collecting bug after a few trips to the monthly Canterbury Record Fair.  Second Saturday of every month it was…

Lou Barlow – Live at Missing Link Records

You may find this ridiculous but this post is for a cassette that I have not even listened to yet.  In fact I doubt I will ever listen to it.  What drove me to write this post was a response to my first ever comment on this site (Hey I think only 5 people have…

Sebadoh Secret E.P.

Sebadoh are back! …and they are recording a new album! I really wasn’t sure what to think of this…Am I excited?  Do I care?  Of course I do and to kick start it all they have a ‘secret’ e.p. to whet the appetite and to help fund the new album!  But it is download only…

Collecting. What is it good for?

If this blog ever gets put live I’ll be surprised but as Sebadoh & Suchlike appears to have been left to die (Which is a true shame but hey we all have better things to be doing with our lives eh?) I thought, well how about I put something together which may help fill all…
