Earlier this month, Lou Barlow let loose “Moving”, the excellent first glimpse of his forthcoming solo album, Brace the Wave. The Dinosaur Jr. bassist returns this week with “Wave”, an equally impressive, touching number in which he offers to accept the brunt of misfortunes to come. “Take your disappointment and put it on me,” he sings without any reservations.

Listen in below.
