THE FREED MAN

Sebadoh | DNO152

Image: The Freed Man Packshot

The Freed Man was one of the first and most crucial releases in the burgeoning lo-fi movement, which would peak in media attention in the mid 1990s with the success of Beck, Guided By Voices and Pavement. But while it helped inspire and define a global movement, there's little trace of that ambition within these tracks. Sebadoh in this incarnation are a cherishably intimate experience. The seventy-odd minutes of wayward brilliance collected here offer the listener the rare and recommended opportunity to transport themselves to the weedhazed bedroom where these scraps and songs and pranks were recorded, to imbibe deeply of the haywire creativity that went on in these sessions. Finally released in deluxe edition, this is the second Sebadoh reissue from Domino, following last year's critically lauded release of III. The Freed Man re-issue has been re-mastered and includes a whopping 52 tracks on a single disc, including many tracks that have never seen the light of day until now. It also contains expanded liner notes by Lou Barlow and Eric Gaffney.
