In 1986, Lou Barlow split off from Dinosaur Jr. & eventually teamed-up with Jason Loewenstein to pursue a strain of musical ideas & aspirations that didn’t fit in with Dino’s sound. The project he started working on came to be known as Sebadoh, named after a string of nonsense lyrical filler syllables Barlow would frequently murmur into the microphone. Along with Pavement and Guided By Voices, Sebadoh is credited as the deathless ‘primal father’ of the lo-fi aesthetic.

Waveless have been touring the DIY circuit of damp basements and abandoned warehouses for the last 5 years. Starting as a fast paced punk outfit they have shifted into something that is still dense and buzzy, yet also melodic and melancholy. The trio take notes from bands like Hüsker Dü, Sonic Youth, and the Pixies, capturing the energy and sound of the underground as they reshape it.
