File Under Easy Listening
If anyone out there dug those Eleventh Dream Day tracks I posted a while back, make sure you check this album out. Sugar’s File Under Easy Listening is a little bit misleading as a title, but given who it’s coming from, it kind of makes sense. This collection of songs is not nearly as hard rocking as most of Bob Mould’s discography, but it is by no means easy listening in the traditional sense. The thread of Mould’s seasoned songwriting is what holds together an album that sometimes bleeds distortion and feedback and sometimes relaxes into easy going jangle tunes. Enjoy two of it’s finer songs…
*By the way, for those of you in the LA area, I saw a stack of these for a buck each at Amoeba just last week.
