Bob Mould – “The Descent”

Bob Mould - Silver AgeBob Mould has been playing Sugar‘s Copper Blue straight through on tour recently. Merge just reissued Copper Blue/Beaster and File Under: Easy Listening, and it sounds like the Sugar revival has influenced his new work.

“The Descent,” the first single from his upcoming solo album Silver Age, opens with his trademark boisterous guitar slicing through it. Mould, backed by drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk, The Mountain Goats) and bassist Jason Narducy, delivers a melodic punch to the gut we haven’t seen since Sugar disbanded in 1995.

Silver Age is out September 4. Pre-order it on the Merge site.
