Between his roles in Sebadoh and the earliest incarnations of Dinosaur Jr., Lou Barlow already had a full-fledged legacy on his hands. Ever prolific, his work was never going to be limited to just those projects as he’d continue to start new side-projects over the years as well as a sprawling solo career. With “I Am Not Mocking You,” his contribution to the Sub Pop Singles Club, he stripped things back with a set of lo-fi ballads that range from fuzzed-out guitar ambiance to wobbling piano heartbreakers. The back cover of the single features a portrait of Barlow taken by Eric’s Trip’s Julie Doiron.
