Drei Jahre in Berlin und schon gibts was Neues von Bob Mould!

Heute nachmittag flatterte die Info von CargoRecords in mein Strompostfach, und hier beim Bob und seinen Krachgitarren bin ich Fan, hier darf ichs sein, und deshalb schiebe ich das auch mal in meine kleine Bloghütte:

(…) I started spending time in Berlin in 2015, found an apartment in 2016, and became a resident in 2017. My time in Berlin has been a life changing experience. The winter days are long and dark, but when the sun comes back, all spirits lift. (…) To go from „See A Little Light” to the last three albums, two of which were informed by loss of each parent, respectively, at some point I had to put a Post-It note on my work station and say, ‘Try to think about good things.’ Otherwise I could really go down a long, dark hole (…) I’m trying to keep things brighter these days as a way to stay alive.
Sunshine Rock" was such a bright, optimistic song, and once that came together, I knew that would be the title track, and that really set the tone for the direction of the album (…) It was funny, because writing with that as the opener in mind, it was like, ‘This is not Black Sheets of Rain.’

Die neue Platte wird am 8. Februar 2019 bei Merge Records erscheinen, und dann gibt es auch eine Europa-Tour. In Deutschland sind derzeit Hamburg, Berlin und Düsseldorf geplant:

I’ve heard this thing about ‘guitars are dead’ at least five times, and they always seem to come back. For better or worse, this is what I do. I think there’s a lot of people trying to aspire to make great albums. That’s really what this is about: trying to make great rock albums for people because there’s not that many anymore.

Rrrr°. Dieser Gitarrensound… hach.
