Blasts from the Pasts

SeBADoh singer and Dinosaur Jr drummer Lou Barlow drops another solo effort into the universe this week. Titled Brace the Wave, it’s only Barlow’s second strictly solo effort. Northern Transmissions describes it thusly: “a lot of the tracks sound very intimate as if they are were recorded on a 4-track in his basement, like the early Sentridoh tracks, with many of them featuring just vocals, acoustic guitar and a hint of some electric guitar plucking to accent some moments.”
Prog rockers The Dear Hunter unveil Act IV: Rebirth in Reprise this week.
Florida punk chargers Against Me! perform 23 Live Sex Acts on their new live album.
Black Key dude Dan Auerbach’s side project The Arcs offer up their debut, Yours, Dreamily. NPR says the record “ignites like a cigarette flicked on a stream of gasoline.”
No Closer to Heaven, the fifth release from The Wonder Years, will also be released this week.
Here’s the part where we pay respects to those who’ve danced off this mortal coil. But I don’t see no dead people in the last week, at least not music related. And when that happens I always post some Mingus. Maybe I missed sumthin’. If so let me know!
