Sebadoh Mainstays of the indie rock scene through the '80s and '90s, Sebadoh is back...kind of. The band reissued Bakesale, which originally debuted in 1994. This album was the first studio effort post-departue of founding member Eric Gaffney. The reissue includes an additional CD of b-sides, rarities and other tracks, as overseen by band members Lou Barlow and Jason Loewenstein.
Marissa Nadler With four albums to her name, singer Marissa Nadler decided to release her fifth, self-titled effort without a record label. Instead, Nadler utilized her own Kickstarter campaign to fund the album. The album has the folk elements that Nadler is known for, with some synth thrown into the mix. On tour this summer, the closest Marissa Nadler will come to St. Louis is Chicago, where she'll be performing in July.
