The Folk Implosion releases double single “My Little Lamb” w/ “Bobblehead Doll”

The Folk Implosion is set to release Walk Thru Me (Joyful Noise Recordings), its first full-length album in 25 years on June 28, 2024. Today the band, comprised of Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr.) and John Davis, released a double single, “My Little Lamb” and “Bobblehead Doll.”

“My Little Lamb” is The Folk Implosion’s tough yet tender ode to parenthood. “That’s my first stab at articulating what it’s like being a dad,” Barlow explains. “I wanted it to include all of the light shit and all of the dark shit.” This flows into the infectiously catchy “Bobblehead.” Originally based on an intimate relationship where someone preferred to be propped up instead of listening to opposing perspectives, Davis rewrote the lyrics 15 years later to make them more broadly political. He describes the song as “Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing Consent meets ‘Beautiful World’ by DEVO.”
