Lou Barlow & The Missingmen
Lou Barlow

In the four years since his career-redefining, mostly acoustic record Emoh, Lou Barlow has reunited with Dinosaur Jr. and reissued three of Sebadoh's classic albums. But as the brilliant new Goodnight Unknown illustrates, hes hardly living in the past. Borrowing the live-band energy of Dinosaur Jr. and the stylistic reach of Sebadoh, Barlow has built on Emoh's full production and written a set of immediate, melodic pop songs that Lou describes as, "a cross between my later work with Folk Implosion and my earlier work with Sebadoh...to my ears, anyway." From the surging opening track "Sharing" to the surprisingly soulful performances on "The Right," Goodnight Unknown benefits from Barlow's tunefulness and his decision to record the record relatively quickly, with old friends and new. The Melvins' Dale Crover adds inspired drum work throughout, and Goodnight Unknown's urgent sound owes just as much to frequent Barlow collaborator Imaad Wasif (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, alaska!). The record's considerable power also stems from the new talents on board, including producer Andrew Murdock and Lisa Germano.

PRESS:

"[The Knot], the upcoming record by Wye Oak (which combines Yo La Tengo drone with My Morning Jacket riffs and Spinanes-like intimacy.)" ~ Noel Murray, The Onion AV Club "Best Records of 2009 So Far"

*********************************************

"Hint: not only is it devastatingly pretty, it bests just about everything about If Children, which is, yes, possible." ~ Baltimore City Paper

*********************************************

"While the blurry folk-noise fusion of Wye Oak's first album had an offhand charm, Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack's follow-up is tougher and more engrossing." ~ Spin Magazine, 8/10

*********************************************

"Listening to their debut album If Children is like taking a master class in indie rock (with a large section on Yo La Tengo and the male-female duo dynamic). Unlike school, though, it's actually quite a pleasant experience." ~ All Music Guide

*********************************************

"Our multi-instrumentalist hosts sing in warming, serene tones while exploring themes of political and environmental unrest, yet this is a strangely comforting debut, its crisp, dry, distinct anodyne sounds welcome whether cathedral big or button small." ~ Mojo Magazine, 4 stars
