Dinosaur Jr.’s Lou Barlow Shares New Solo Track, ‘Moving’
Dinosaur Jr. bassist Lou Barlow is preparing to release Brace the Wave, his first solo album since 2009's Goodnight Unknown, and today (Aug. 5), he shared a synthy new song from the disc -- listen to "Moving" below.
Barlow announced in July that the album will be released on Sept. 4 via Joyful Noise Recordings, while also sharing tour dates and an album trailer, both of which you can check out below. He also released a statement regarding the album, which reads in part:
Having moved back to Massachusetts (after 17 years in Los Angeles), I recorded ‘Brace The Wave’ in 6 days with Justin Pizzoferrato at Sonelab studios in Easthampton. Justin was the engineer for the 3 Dinosaur Jr ‘reunion’ LP’s. My ease with Justin meant I approached the sessions with focus and confidence. Songs like “Redeemed”, “Wave” and “Moving” reprise my early methods of tuning my ukulele down low and writing the songs during the recording process. Others like “Lazy” and “C+E” are traditional-style folk songs that I performed live in the studio.
