Stream Bob Mould's New Album; See Him Live FREE in Brooklyn on Friday
Bob Mould and band performing "The Descent" on Letterman last night (via Stereogum).
Rolling Stone is streaming Bob Mould's new album "Silver Age," and you can listen to it here. The album dropped on Sept. 4th. (RS has apparently had this up since Aug. 27th; don't know how I missed it, but the stream still works.) I got the album the other day and it definitely rocks; this isn't one of Mould's albums of quiet, introspective songs. It should be great to hear these songs live.
Speaking of which: If you're a Mould fan in the New York area, you'll want to catch his free show this Friday, Sept. 7th at the Williamsburg Park, at East River State Park (see their Facebook page). It's address is listed as 50 Kent Avenue and North 12th St.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, and Cymbals Eat Guitars has been added to the lineup.
As previously mentioned here, Mould and his band (Jon Wurster and Jason Narducy) will play Sugar's classic album "Copper Blue" in its entirety to mark its 20th anniversary. The concert is now being billed as "Bob Mould Plays Copper Blue and Silver Age," so you can expect to hear much of the new album. And, no doubt, some tunes from the catalog of Hüsker Dü and Mould's solo career.
If you're a Bob Mould fan (like me) this is a great week, especially if you're in New York. In case you're not in the NYC area, Mould appears next in Washington, D.C. (Sept. 8th), Boston (the 10th), and Philadelphia (the 11th). See all Bob Mould tour dates here.
