Led by once and future Dinosaur Jr. bassist Lou Barlow, Sebadoh blazed through the '90s helping to define movements in both indie rock and lo-fi music with their often confused and always ramshackle albums of stoner punk anthems, goofball non sequiturs, and moody, heartbroken post-grunge guitar rock. Following a 14-year dormancy since 1999's lackluster The Sebadoh, Defend Yourself revitalizes the project with surprisingly few huge changes. Barlow's most serious tunes are still marked by his signature ache, this time informed by the breakup of his 25-year marriage.
Defend Yourself" is saturated with songs of heartache relating to the divorce from his wife and partner of 25 years. According to Barlow, "Your greatest victories and your most crushing defeats have a tendency to give birth to one other. The new album also marks a return to the self-recorded DIY ethos of early Sebadoh albums (III, Bakesale, et.

Sebadoh are back! The hearts of a million ‘Indie’ fan boys are aflutter in anticipation of their favourite maudlin singer, songwriter, Lou Barlow and his East coast ‘Lo-Fi’ legends releasing new material. But is it any good? Check out what we think below. After the many tours in support of further re-issues, Gaffney was replaced by Bob D’Amico in 2011, and it is this line-up that brings us this new album, ‘Defend Yourself’.

Both Defend Yourself and the Lips’ 13th album, The Terror, were born from the ashes of a longterm relationship, but while Coyne used his breakup as fuel for general ruminations on life’s impermanence, Barlow filled his new album with songs specific enough to sound like they’re meant to be sung to a single person. Defend Yourself isn’t a philosophical excavation like The Terror. It’s a drama with a cast of characters. That’s not to say that a 27-year-old Sebadoh should be expected to sound as raucous as the trio did at their peak. But about half of Defend Yourself affects an aggression that rings hollow inside the album’s compressed production. The worst offender, Defend yr Self blares like a misshapen hybrid of Mastodon and Incubus. Why are you dumping me? Lowenstein howls from the front.
Fourteen years since their last full-length, The Sebadoh, Lou Barlow and Jason Loewenstein return with a new album. It's home-recorded and far less slick than its 1999 predecessor and shows how much has changed for the band since their 90s heyday. Featured Tracks: Play Track.
