Inside The Rockers Studio: Sebadoh

On Sebadoh III Lou Barlow and Eric Gaffney added Jason Lowenstein and created one of the most important underground rock records of the past twenty years. Noisey, folky, and just plain awesome, III became a touchstone of American indie rock. This week Domino released a deluxe reissue that includes a bonus disc of rarities.

Fifteen years later, it still rocks.
