After six years, legendary Massachusetts group Sebadoh - friends of Subpop from back in the day - deliver a new album called "Act Surprised". It adds a revitalised bevy of local blues tales and happy go lucky songs to an audience that can be assured the spirit of American punk, grunge, shoegaze and rock is still strong in Sebadoh. That '90s movie soundtrack motif - whether the band wanted it or not - is still there and sounding unique and finely restored. With accents and sounds of both the music and voices giving rise to memories of when bands like Weezer, Pearl Jam and Tool were dominating the airwaves, it's good to know that the grungy low slung feels of Sebadoh are still in their melancholic, easy going, Massachusetts way.
