Boomkat Product Review:
A US college radio station's wet dream, this excellent release on Steve Shelley's (Sonic Youth) Smells Like Records label features the lo-fi musings of Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jnr, Sebadoh), recorded back in the early nineties and previously only available from eBay shitehawks. The kind of music that the lexical items 'stripped' and 'down' were invented for, 'Winning Losers' shuffles into your consciousness from a dusty four-track lodged deep within Barlow's bruised soul. Credited in some quarters as having germinated the creaky lo-fi explosion that is still dissipating to this day, Senitrodh uses only guitar, frail percussion, chord organ and piano to conjure his musical edicts; a limited palate which pays dividends. Opening with 'Stronger', Barlow combines an Elliot Smith-lilt with a breezy composition that recalls prime-time Teenage Fanclub or less dramatic Simon & Garfunkle' albeit fed through an indie template. Alternating between the friably tender ('Chokechain') and the comparatively bombastic ('Only Losers'), Barlow displays a bitter lyrical edge that perfectly compliments the lo-fi aesthetic and more than prevents 'Winning Losers' being a mere curios for Sebadoh completists.
