Bob Mould – District Line
Halfway into the latest try by the former marvel of post-hardcore guitar and punk-pop song, sometime pro-wrestling plotter and current Daily Show theme composer, I brightened with the thought that he might be on some kind of comeback. As it fell apart in the second half, into by now all-too-familiar meandering navel-gazing, I recalled that 2005’s instantly forgotten Body of Song also sounded like an upturn for a few tracks. A week or two later, the unbelievably well-named “Old Highs, New Lows” came in up in shuffle and until I couldn’t resist to look at the screen, I wondered what voice-modulated twerpy son of Dave Matthews had snuck his way onto my ipod.
