In his new song, "HOME", Lou Barlow (Sebadoh) builds a sweet melancholy melody over a murky, gurgling, bubbling, rhythm of drum loops. At times the mood is closely threatened by synthesized strings, but they fail in their attempt (thanks to Barlow's good taste, no doubt), tempered by the vocal and a strummed acoustic guitar - grounding the song within the heartfelt sadness of the lyric.
A quiet, beautiful moment amongst the indie rock noise.
