Bob Mould - Silver Age (September)

Bob will release SILVER AGE, his first album of all new studio material since 2009’s LIFE AND TIMES, this September on Merge. The new record features Bob's current band--drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and bassist Jason Narducy (Telekinesis, ex-Verbow)--on 10 brand new Bob compositions in the punishingly loud melodically sparkling pop/rock vein of the Sugar catalogue being reissued on Merge July 24.

The track listing for SILVER AGE is:

1 Star Machine
2 Silver Age
3 The Descent
4 Briefest Moment
5 Steam Of Hercules
6 Fugue State
7 Round The City Square
8 Angels Rearrange
9 Keep Believing
10 First Time Joy

Re: Bob Mould - Silver Age (September)

I haven't seen this trio. Narducy was on the last band show I saw for Body of Song. I hear Wurster is great.

They were good as hell in LA. The Hüsker songs they did were on point.

Nice, first track was decent. I'll have time to hear it on the train tomorrow.

Re: Bob Mould - Silver Age (September)

Had my first record shop with GS jr. today... touching moment. Picked this up and some jazz. So far so good, but I was listening in my loud car. I don't think it will be his best by a longshot, but still always happy to get more Mould.

Grant Hart's double album finally has a label taker, so that's on the horizon.

Re: Bob Mould - Silver Age (September)

I'm a Bob fanboi 4 life, but that said, this isn't my favorite.

Descent is very good. The last track has a nice vibe. The first two are memorable.

Some thing about the four chord choruses that is too 90s throwback for me (I know he wants to pair this with SUGAR's Copper Blue).

He really goes all out in the thank yous for all things Foo Fighter and Grohl. Sheeeeiit... they should be thanking him...

Re: Bob Mould - Silver Age (September)

I read somewhere where he said he just wanted to make a good pop record.

Just a CRANK IT UP AND GIVE NO FUCKS record. Which is why there's not the usual BOB GETS HEAVY ABOUT SHIT.

He succeeds there. I'm wishing I liked it more, but like I said, the Descent is killer. I could stand for him to emulate his 80s sound rather than his 90s sound, if that makes any sense.
