Lou Barlow + the missingmen (guitarist Tom Watson and drummer Raul Morales - Lou's touring band who do great things with Mike Watt too) have released a new EP = Sentridoh III, out now digitally through Merge (physical copies will be at shows). About the record, the label writes:
Described by the band as "an almost live representation of the Lou Barlow + the missingmen live show", = Sentridoh III is another step forward for Lou Barlow, and his first release with new backing band the missingmen. With new cuts, rocking reworks of songs from Lou's latest solo record Goodnight Unknown, and a hauntingly beautiful cover of Skip James's "I'm So Glad", = Sentridoh III is sure to please fans new and old alike.
You can get a track from it above, or stream the EP in full at Merge.
Lou will be touring the Western US with the missingmen this June. They go on tour with Wye Oak in August and September. That tour visits NYC for a Mercury Lounge show on Wednesday, September 1st. Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon. General sale starts Friday at noon.
