The two most celebrated albums from lo-fi indie rock legends Sebadoh, 1996's Harmacy and 1994's Bakesale, marked a significant change in direction from the band. Following the departure of co-founder Eric Gaffney and his frantic, experimental noise rock, the band shifted its sound from two-minute, schizophrenic songs into slightly longer, more refined pieces.
It's funny how band dynamics work like that -- especially considering that Sebadoh was created, essentially, as a means for frontman Lou Barlow to express his own stifled creativity in Dinosaur Jr. But they do. And now Barlow and his "other" band are on tour, promoting the re-release of Harmacy and Bakesale, and bringing fellow indie rockers Quasi with them.
