Lou Barlow (born July 17, 1966) is a musician born in Ohio but more commonly associated with the late-80s to early-90s Western Mass-Boston music axis. He is widely considered to be among the most prolific and ground-breaking indie musicians of the 1990's. He's best known for his work with Sebadoh, Folk Implosion and Dinosaur Jr.'s original and current lineup. Many labels have been applied to his unique brand of acoustic rock, including lo-fi, folk-pop and folkcore. Barlow's latest album, his second official solo effort under his own name, is titled Goodnight Unknown.
