Body of Song


Bob Mould
Body of Song
(Yep Roc)
Two years ago Bob Mould declared his loud guitar days over. After Modulate, he was only going to DJ or play solo acoustic shows. Well, best throw that out the window. Body of Song is a full band effort (featuring Brendan Canty of Fugazi on drums and ex-Sugar bassist David Barbe) that nestles comfortably beside Sugar’s FUEL in its blend of Mould’s signature guitar buzz and melodic moments. Songs like “Best Thing” and “Circle” are vintage Mould — catchy, aggressive and begging to be played at painful decibel levels. And there are a few hints of his newfound love of dance music that don’t seem out of place. “High Fidelity,” a lame, formulaic ballad a younger Mould would have ridiculed, is the only misstep in an otherwise triumphant return to form.
