Lou Barlow – “Wave” (Stereogum Premiere)

Lou Barlow wears a lot of musical hats — he’s a member of Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr., and Folk Implosion, curated and compiled the Kids soundtrack, and is also a solo artist. Barlow recorded his upcoming release (the first in six years) in just six days with Justin Pizzoferrato, the engineer for the three Dinosaur Jr. “reunion” LPs. In a press release, Barlow says that songs like pseudo title track “Wave” reprise his early methods of tuning his ukulele down low and writing the songs during the recording process. The result is some of the most intimate work of Barlow’s career. Listen below.
