So yeah, I’ve been slacking. The past week has been busy, on top of my awesome birthday, so I’ve neglected this whole thing for a few days, but of course I intended to come back today. And Bob Mould gave me that extra push. I must admit, I haven’t been crazy about the Husker Daddy’s output the past several years. His more mature sound, while maintaining the classic Mould knack for sharp melody, has started to feel a bit samey. So it seems ironic that the first track from his upcoming album, Silver Age (there’s the irony) is a return to form track for Mould. Maybe it’s the rumor that he’s performing Copper Blue in its entirety at Fun Fun Fun Fest, but the old coot sounds like he’s in Sugar again, and I love it. Stream below. Silver Age drops September 4th.
