2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Workbook, and also the release of Bob Mould's latest album, Life And Times, set for an April 7th street date. Produced and mixed by Mould in his current hometown of Washington D.C., the album is filled with Mould's experiences in relation to friends, lovers, the world at large and himself. It is honest and personal, his voice breaking on "Bad Blood Better," the electronic twitches of earlier work reappearing under signature blazing guitars on "MM17." Mould appraises the perils of easy self-distraction on "Wasted World" and is not afraid to get explicit on "Argos." The emotional and musical centerpiece of the record, "I'm Sorry Baby, But You Can't Stand In My Light Anymore," is an unflinching look at the sorrow and regret that comes at the end of love.Tickets are on sale for two shows at Joe's Pub in April (8th & 9th). Catch Bob even sooner when he plays an R.E.M. cover at Carnegie Hall on March 11th. All dates and the new album tracklist below...

After a great (and late) Saturday-night, morning (3pm) bloomed with Robin Guthrie (co-founder of Cocteau Twins) and his shimmering ambient soundscapes in the main room. Backlit by projections of fractals and waves, it was the perfect way to ease into Sunday. Le Volume Courbe and Wounded Knees (both opening for MBV tonight at Roseland) had already played on stage two, but sadly, I missed them.
While Guthrie shined on, I scooted on over to stage deux and caught a few minutes of sunny pop by The Lilys (opener for MBV in NYC night two).
According to this totally random list I found, the 25 'Greatest Punk Rock Artists' are:
1. The ClashLuckily you don't have to choose. You can go see Television's Richard Lloyd at Southpaw tonight (July 23) and Hüsker Dü's Bob Mould at Maxwell's tomorrow (or you can see Bob Mould tonight too)
3. The Ramones
4. The Sex Pistols
5. The Stooges
6. Dead Kennedys
8. Black Flag
9. The Misfits
10. Bad Brains
11. Minor Threat
12. Joy Division
13. The Buzzcocks
14. Husker Du
15. Bad Religion
17. The Damned
18. The Circle Jerks
21. Stiff Little Fingers
22. Patti Smith
23. Green Day
25. Gang Of Four

The Sonics rolled back the years during their highly anticipated comeback set at Primvera Sound, as old met new at the eclectic festival. The punk pioneers played a hit heavy set on day two of the festival (Friday), wowing the Barcelona audience with classics including 'Strychnine' and 'The Witch'.The 2008 Primavera Sound Festival happened in Barcelona this past weekend. I just posted a bit about Portishead, and some Atlas Sound and El Guincho too. The rest of what we've got is below....
Playing a rare festival show as part of their comeback tour, the Seattle band headed up a line up packed with returning legends.
Earlier on, the Bob Mould Band raced through favourites from the singer's former bands, Sugar and Husker Du, including 'Hoover Dam' and 'Hardly Getting Over It'.
Post punk trailblazers Devo received one of the best receptions of the festival so far, with a set as tight as their trademark yellow jumpsuits - which were disgarded towards the end of the show.
Spanish favourites Sebadoh made their return to the Barcelona festival to perform their debut album 'The Freed Man'.
And Portishead played their second set of the festival, following on from Thursday's showstopper, this time in the indoors Auditori. [Virtual Festivals][
DOWNLOAD: Bob Mould - Stupid Now (new MP3)
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.
