A hair-raisingly emotional, undeniably catchy, loud, mature guitar rock album, bolstered by the ace drumming of Fugazi's Brendan Canty, Mould's forthcoming disc affirms he is more relevant than ever. From the achingly honest and instantly memorable opening track, "Stupid Now" and the gorgeously-crafted "Who Needs To Dream" to the melodically inventive ballad "Old Highs, New Lows" and the Sugar-esque, riff-propelled "The Silence Between Us," Bob Mould is back. As the as the career-defining District Line affirms, he is more than living up to his reputation as one of the great influences on rock music's last quarter century.
With a musical canon that has inspired everyone from the Foo Fighters Dave Grohl to Daft Punk's Thomas Bangaltar, Mould plays to his strengths on District Line, drawing on two-plus decades of groundbreaking work with underground heroes Hüsker Dü, the beloved modern rock troupe Sugar, and with a solo career that first took flight with 1989's landmark Workbook.
Mould first gained notoriety at the helm of Hüsker Dü, purveyors of underground milestones like the epic 1984 double album, Zen Arcade, 1985's New Day Rising and Flip Your Wig (all for SST) before jumping to Warner Brothers in 1986 for acclaimed college radio classics like that year's Candy Apple Grey and 1987's mind-blowing double-disc swansong Warehouse: Songs and Stories.
The complete track listing for District Line will be:
1. Stupid Now
2. Who Needs To Dream
3. Again and Again
4. Old Highs New Lows
5. Return To Dust
6. The Silence Between Us
7. Shelter Me
8. Very Temporary
