SINGER/SONGWRITER. BOB MOULD releases his all-new studio album "beauty & ruin" again on Merge Records. Described as a compact epic, "beauty & ruin" packs a staggering lifetime's worth of emotion and experience into a 36min. package sure to be hailed as a landmark addition to BOB MOULD's formidable body of work, which includes his pioneering early '80s work with HÜSKER DÜ and solo work in singer-songwriter, electronic, and rock modes, as well as the never-forgotten deafening pop sparkle of SUGAR. As with 2012's highly acclaimed "silver age", "beauty & ruin" finds BOB joined by his longtime band.

SINGER/SONGWRITER. Here's the deal. In 2012, people loved "silver age", likewise "beauty & ruin" in 2014. But "patch the sky" is the darkest one. BOB MOULD went the punk-rock route - an entire album of 2min. songs. The music makes you forget. But "patch the sky" is also the catchiest one. It's the perfect balance of bright melodies and dark stories. Music is an incredibly powerful drug. BOB MOULD want to be your drug dealer. He has what you need. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

SINGER/SONGWRITER. The theme, the cathartic vocals, and the strings all amount to MOULD's catchiest, grabbiest album since "copper blue", the acclaimed 1992 debut of his trio SUGAR. Back then, MOULD's work in HÜSKER DÜ, as a solo artist, and in SUGAR helped define the sound of guitar rock in the alternative age. "sunshine rock" finds him doing it again for an era that has ostensibly eschewed rock. Limited colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
