Upcoming: Lou Barlow Solo Record


Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh‘s Lou Barlow is releasing his first solo record in six years, Brace the Wave, on September 4 via Joyful Noise. A full track list is available from Consequence of Sound, along with some advance knowledge of the record’s sound, such as that Brace the Wave was recorded with Justin Pizzoferrato (Pixies, Speedy Ortiz, J Mascis) in less than a week, and that a press release has announced that “a number of songs ‘employ his early methods of tuning his ukulele down low’… while others are ‘traditional-style folk’ numbers.” September and October tour dates are up, mostly coastal stops with a few European shows. Watch the album’s trailer after the jump.
