Husker Du’s Bob Mould Sees The Beauty and The Ruin on Strong New Album

Bob Mould, one of the most influential artists from 80's punk with Husker Du, is back with a new solo album Beauty and Ruin. It builds on his last two albums, 2009's Life and Times and 2012's Silver Age, using the same rhythm section of Jason Narducy on bass and Jon Wurster on drums. Since coming out and making an excursion into club music with Modulate in 2002, Mould has gotten back into the three-piece guitar driven format that is his forte. It's the sound he also used in the 90's with Sugar. Mould may have said much in his autobiography, See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody, from 2011 but has saved a lot for us today.
