"Emoh" is the first solo album from Lou Barlow, the Sebadoh and Folk Implosion frontman. The album was released in 2005 and recorded at The Beech House Recording Megaplex (2004) in Wedgewood Sound, Nashville, Tennessee, United States.

"Rolling Stone" (No. 967, p.84) gave the album 3 stars out of 5 and noted: " [F] ull of quiet lyricism and Nick Drake beauty..." "Uncut" (p.108) gave 4 stars out of 5 and said: "Using acoustic guitar, piano and vocals, he delivers 14 sweetly somber neo-folk tunes that reveal just how subtly persuasive the man's influence really is."
