Sebadoh, 'Bakesale' (Sub Pop)

Critical Mass
Release Date: June 14, 2011
Label: Sub Pop

by Andrew Hultkrans

2A hypersensitive Joni Mitchell fan caught up in '80s hardcore, Lou Barlow endured years of psychodrama as Dinosaur Jr.'s bassist before starting Sebadoh with Eric Gaffney and Jason Loewenstein. The trio churned out cassettes, seven-inches, and albums bursting with lo-fi bedsit folk, heavy indie angst, and experimental tape collages. Bakesale was the catchy, coherent 1994 breakthrough -- a missing link between Nick Drake and Sonic Youth. Unreleased period tracks are included on a bonus disc.
