Stream: Sebadoh’s ‘Secret’ EP — first new music from Lou Barlow & Co. in 13 years

After several years of touring in support of various classic albums, the reunited Sebadoh this week dropped a surprise on fans: a new five-song EP called Secret, which is both Lou Barlow & Co.’s first new music in 13 years and a teaser to a full-length album that should arrive sometime in 2013 (but that won’t feature any of these songs).

As Backstage Rider points out, the set features three songs by Barlow (“Keep the Boy Alive”, “Arbitrary High” and “All Kinds”) and two by Jason Loewenstein (“My Drugs” and “I Don’t Mind”), with Bob D’Amico on drums: “And Lou says that if you liked old Sebadoh — circa Bubble & Scrape era — you’ll like these. At least he hopes so.”

The EP — the band’s first release since 1999’s The Sebadoh — can be streamed below and purchased as a download for $5 via Bandcamp; it’s also available on Sebadoh’s upcoming U.S. tour (see dates below) and could see a wider physical release in the future.
