Five tracks of brand new music from Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh legend Lou Barlow.

In Lou’s own words: “The melodic inspirations for the record came from my day in the back stairways and basement of the enormous Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (Dinosaur Jr. were there opening for Primus in August 2015). I was alone and playing my ukulele in the cavernous spaces and tiled showers there. The unique reverberations brought the beginnings of these songs. The hall is reputed to be haunted and I’m not so sure it isn’t. I wasn’t able to fully draw the songs out until I recorded, once again, with Justin Pizzoferrato at Sonelab in Easthampton Massachusetts (May 2016). I recorded my last full length record (‘Brace The Wave’) there in 2015. I’m happy to consider this EP a follow up to that album though, this time, every song is played on ukulele (strung with heavy strings and tuned much lower than a standard uke). Actually, it sounds nothing like a ukulele. For all intents and purposes it is a 4-string acoustic guitar utilizing the strumming styles and lower toned soundscapes I’ve been pursuing since my first released ukulele recording: ‘Poledo’ (on Dinosaur Jr.’s 2nd LP ‘You’re Living All Over Me’). Yes, I’ve been doing this for a long time. I’d be proud to have ‘Apocalypse Fetish’ be my final record.”
