Sebadoh Will Reissue Weed Forrestin, Planets Will Then Align


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Sebadoh is the gift that keeps on giving, Clark. Domino Records too, as they've just announced a reissue of Sebadoh's The Freed Man, the holiest of holies. They've repackaged the album into an expanded version of 52 songs... one for every week of the year, and it includes never released before material. Are you freaking out yet? You should be!

Man. This was one of the classic examples of the power of the bedroom studio recordings. Completely lo-fi, almost bad studio techniques, that completely made up for it on the creative side. They created soundscapes for lost weekends that transformed your sense of time and place to one devoid of any definition of locale, i.e. the musical out of body experience. It was the acoustic building ground for Sebadoh's later songwriting -- merging sounds and music and parts of movies and vocal experiments into a sonic mashup that blew my mind.

I found my way to it by backtracking after initially getting into Smash Your Head On The Punk Rock and Bubble and Scrape and then backtracking to the Freed Weed, a combination of The Freed Man and Weed Forrestin'. The songs on Weed Forrestin' were the perfect low intensity acoustic counterpart to the bombasity of the other albums.

The Freed Man will be released on July 10th.
