This recording is so super rare I couldn't find a proper image of the cover so here's Lou Barlow

Sentridoh is the lo-fi bedroom folk project of Dinosaur Jr  bassist and Sebadoh chief sad/stoned guy Lou Barlow. This 7″ is one of Barlow’s darkest solo creations and generally revolves around three guitar notes and dramatic vocals. I think there might be pots and pans being hit  and a broken piano in there somewhere. In a way it reminds me of early Xiu Xiu recordings, perhaps due to Barlow’s schizophrenic vocals that jump from deadpan spoken word to shouting to hushed singing in the space of a 90 second song. The song’s themes, generally sex and depression make this quite a bleak EP.  Lyrics include “I dont care if the world is dead” and “Anything is fake if it’s real”. This record seems perfect for those “I hate everything, everything is terrible” days and lo-fi/Lou Barlow lovers everywhere.
