In 1986, Lou Barlow split off from Dinosaur Jr. & eventually teamed-up with Jason Loewenstein to pursue a strain of musical ideas & aspirations that didn’t fit in with Dino’s sound. The project he started working on came to be known as Sebadoh, named after a string of nonsense lyrical filler syllables Barlow would frequently murmur into the microphone. Along with Pavement and Guided By Voices, Sebadoh is credited as the deathless ‘primal father’ of the lo-fi aesthetic.
Blessed State are a 5 piece melodic punk/indie band from Western Massachusetts. Emerging as a DIY basement project to national touring entity over the course of their 4 year existence, they have also seen quick development in their sound. From the Revolution Summer-style post-punk of 2014’s “Head Space” LP (recorded in Easthampton MA with Justin Pizzoferrato of Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz, & Sonic Youth notoriety) to the tight rock melodies of 2015’s “Slipstream EP”, they have found balance in the bombastically harmonious. As they prepare in writing for their next full length release, the band continues their workmanlike persistence as a regional touring entity and host for touring bands making their way through the New England corridor.
