Lou Barlow shares new solo “Anniversary Song” — listen

on October 17, 2016, 12:30pm

Last year, Lou Barlow released his first solo album in six years, Brace the Wave. Now, some 12 months later, he’s returning with a new EP titled Apocalypse Fetish. Slated to arrive in stores on October 28th via Joyful Recordings, the five-track effort finds the Dinosaur Jr. bassist armed with nothing but a ukulele.

“The melodic inspirations for the record came from my day in the back stairways and basement of the enormous Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,” Barlow recalls in an official statement. “I was alone and playing my ukulele in the cavernous spaces and tiled showers there. The unique reverberations brought the beginnings of these songs. The hall is reputed to be haunted and I’m not so sure it isn’t.”

Barlow previewed the EP in September with “The Breeze“; today, he’s sharing a cheery number in “Anniversary Song”. The song was “written this past May on my 1st wedding anniversary,” he tells Noisey. “It is probably the most straight forward love song I’ve done.” Aww.
