Some things change and some things stay the same. It's been a while since Lou Barlow and Jason Loewenstein recorded under the name Sebadoh, but listening to the Secret EP, the precursor to the band's forthcoming full-length, you'd think it had been only fourteen months, not fourteen years.

Their skills and equipment may have improved over time, giving the songs a bit more polish than before, but Barlow and Loewenstein remain as fiercely independent as ever. And though Barlow's songs stem from recent turmoil, a divorce from his wife of 25 years, ultimately it's just another batch of breakup songs. Watch their recent in-studio as the duo, and drummer Bob D'Amico, trade songs and talk about hippy records, cats and how little time has actually passed:
