Bakesale: Deluxe Edition (Sub Pop)

Phantasmagoric extras time out at an hour's worth of EPs, singles, and demos: Germanic techno ("Cementville") to acoustic rebounds ("On Fire") and all manner of sonic madness ("Hank Williams"). Real bonus: remastered reminder that fifth Sebadoh LP Bakesale (1994) corralled such kitchen-sink clatter beginning with the can-opener riff to first salvo "License To Confuse." Mom Barlow's LP cover snapshot entertains an alternate metaphor, but the Dinosaur Jr. Jr. of "Got It" acquits. ****
