The return of these venerable indie rockers with their 11th studio album after a 14 year hiatus
finds them in strong form. The songs build on the band’s previous loose, quirky, frolicking indie
style, combining equal parts of hooky melodic pop structures and semi-raw, mid-fi post-grunge
energy. Dark, noisy guitars roar with a slacker-punk core one minute and ring with a psychedelic
roots/pop spirit in the next. Members have played in Dinosaur Jr., Folk Implosion, Sentridoh.
Recalls bands like the Replacements, Pavement, Meat Puppets, Guided By Voices, Superchunk,
Beat Happening, Robyn Hitchcock. Sebadoh are like the neighborhood garage band that made
it. They’ll always be a ‘7’ or ‘8’ out of ‘10’ for me. Maybe never at the top of the list, but always
on it, always fun to listen to, often better than I expect.
