Our Daily Vinyl #12: Sebadoh

It is a sad but true fact of life that I once derisively mocked anyone who opined how amazing vinyl was and how music just sounded better when played on a turntable. Now, in a somewhat ironic twist of fate, I’ve come to realize, well, it’s true.

The Snowy Owls played down in Richmond last night, and since I wasn't there I feel compelled to post another peek into singer/axeman Matt Klimas' record loves. Sebadoh is a band that I admit to having managed to miss out on, a fact that caused Matt much chagrin when I confessed. Below, he opines about why Bakesale is imperative. Guess one of these days I'll be buying it...

Bakesale – Sebadoh: This record is pure alternative rock pleasure and one of the more focused and consistent pieces in the Sebadoh catalog. Gritty guitars and fuzz bass abound throughout masterfully written mopey pop songs. If this doesn't get your foot tapping, head nodding, and maybe make you slightly weepy, something is wrong. A jewel in 1994's crown.
