Episode #163 of The Andy Derer Show! “Setting The Bar Low” with special guest Lou Barlow


Lou Barlow



This week, Andy had the pleasure of speaking with one of the most consistent songwriters of the past 30 years, Lou Barlow. Thurston Moore once said that Lou “essentially invented lo-fi” with his homemade recordings as Sentridoh and with his bands Sebadoh and Folk Implosion. As founding bassist for Dinosaur Jr, Lou and J Mascis created massive sounding alternative rock years before it was in vogue. Andy and Lou discuss being an outsider from the grunge explosion of the early 90s, with Sebadoh creating disjointed and eccentric (though entirely classic) albums like Sebadoh III and Bubble & Scrape while other bands went for big productions and ear-pleasing sonics. Then they chat about Lou’s 1995 Top 40 hit “Natural One” for the Larry Clark produced film “Kids” and how a little payola certainly went a long way for Folk Implosion. The guys also go behind the scenes with Lou’s latest solo recording Brace The Wave out now on Joyful Noise Recordings. Andy opens the show with his take on Lou’s “Repeat” recreated for voice and dulcimer and butchered at The Honeycomb Hideout. This is certainly a bucket-list interview for Andy. Thanks for checking out The Andy Derer Show!
