Lou Barlow has released Brace the Wave, his first solo album in six years. Out today on Domino, it's available for purchase with a special Dom Mart only version featuring an original Lou Barlow Polaroid "selfie" inserted into the artwork. You can also stream the full album via Spotify.

To celebrate the release, Barlow has shared an intimate new video for album closer "Repeat," which you can watch where it premiered with SPIN or via YouTube.
 

Brace the Wave adds to Barlow's extensive and celebrated discography, which includes releases from Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, Folk Implosion, and his first solo endeavor, Sentridoh. Recorded with with Justin Pizzoferrato in under a week in western Massachusetts, which Barlow now calls home after seventeen years in LA, the album is a mix of tracks that employ the songwriter's early methods of tuning his ukelele down low and writing during the recording process ("Redeemed," "Wave," "Moving") and traditional-style folk songs that he performed live in the studio ("Lazy" and "C&E".)
