Lou Barlow’s Sebadoh return with their first full-length album in 14 years, Defend Yourself, on September 17th via Joyful Noise. While we’re still a good two months away, our first listen arrives with album opener and new single “I Will”, a four-minute sludge charmer that employs the much-adored loud, quiet, loud trick, jerry rigged to precision by, well, pretty much every garage band around in the late ’80s and early ’90s. “And this will be/ the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Barlow yearns like a scuzzy Billy Joel — not a bad thing. This one’s got a lot of heart, so stream it below.
