Sebadoh. Â Dinosaur Jr. Â Folk Implosion. Â That’s pretty much all you need on your resume, Lou, but you’ve also helped create the supergroup Dumb Numbers, a lightning quick vinyl sellout for Joyful Noise Records and, for many, their first introduction to the now-flourishing label. Â Now, Mr. Lou Barlow is on his own, trying out a rawer, folkier vibe on his new solo record Brace the Wave.
There’s no point in explaining Lou Barlow any further, right? Â You’re either in or out at this point. Â If any of his previous bandsÂ made your blood pump a bit faster and turned your adolescent frowns into half-smiles, then this one should be a no-brainer.
Keep in mind that if you aren’t a V.I.P. yet with Joyful Noise, you’ll need to add $5 to the $17 price tag. Â That will insure your membership for 1 month, and you’ll get the rarer pink and seafoam variant. Â Even cooler, 1 in 5 copies of the record will contain a original polaroid taken by Lou himself.
Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies on marbled pink & seafoam colored vinyl.
One in every five copies includes original Polaroid 'selfie' by Lou Barlow.
