DOWNLOAD: Bob Mould - Stupid Now (new MP3)

DistrictDistrictDistrict

Bob Mould -- the Husker Du and Sugar pioneer -- is preparing the release of his seventh solo album, 'District Line.' After last year's dance floor-savvy Blowoff project with D.C. house head Richard Morel, Mould seems to be making a return to his roots of hook-driven guitar grooves. Written and recorded in D.C., Mould is again joined by Brendan Canty of Fugazi fame for percussive duties. The LP isn't due until February, but you can snag an MP3 of the lead single, 'The Silence Between Us,' on Spinner.
And you can snag another MP3 from the new album at the top of this post. "Please listen to me" and download that one now.

In March Bob is going on tour. Tickets are on sale for a March 13th show at Irving Plaza. All dates below...

"dc punk is where it's at."

Bob Mould is from Minnesota. He never was part of the dc punk scene.

I just saw Bob on Fuse playing an acoustic version of "If I Can't Change Your Mind." No, I don't watch Fuse...I was at a pizza joint.

Bob Mould is actually from upstate New York and moved to the Twin Cities to go to Macalester College. Husker Du, along with The Replacements and Prince, put Minneapolis on the musical map in the 1980's. He relocated to DC from New York a few years back.

Good to see him back on tour again. The last full band show he played at Irving about a year and a half ago was very good. He played Husker Du and Sugar material on that tour so I'm guessing he'll be doing the same thing this time.

Oooh! Somebody uses Wikipedia.

"Husker Du founder Mould, working one of the most identifiable sounds in rock 'n' roll, dipped into his obscurity bin and pulled out two gems, "Surveyors and Cranes" and "Thumbtack." It was fascinating that the well-traveled man from Minnesota who lives in D.C. would choose songs penned in Austin for this show; his tales of nasty traffic jams in "Surveyors and Cranes" could have been easily penned any afternoon on the 405."

In my opinion, Bob Mould can do whatever he wants music-wise but this new song sounds very commercial and overproduced like something you'd hear/see on FUSE. I'm just sayin'...

It actually sounds like someone knows a lot about the artist. I know it's a shocking concept to some people here.

If you like him, you like him, if you don't, you don't... wait until you see him live to really judge, he's alot heavier and more punk then you think.

Who cares where Bob is living or where he is from. The only thing that we care about is that will be back plying guitar and write good stuff either acoustic or electric!

Great show by Mould at Irving Plaza. He's still rocking as hard as when I saw Sugar years ago. He played songs from the new CD, a bit from his previous solo work, some Sugar, and some Husker Du (including two of my faves, Divide and Conquer and Makes No Sense at All).
