Bob Mould – Sunshine Rock

Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from Bob Mould, his new single and title-track of his upcoming album, “Sunshine Rock”.

Mould, “whose face belongs on the Mount Rushmore of alternative music”, was the frontman and guitarist of the 80s post-punk band Hüsker Dü. They are regarded by many as one of the most influential American bands of that movement. Since their disbanding, Mould has had a lengthy solo career, and this album will be on-par with his others. He’s finally back and ready to “write to the sunshine” of these times.

The album is set to release on February 8th, 2019, and after that he’ll set off on a two-month North American and European tour. Check out his renewed “Boblog” to catch up on his life in Germany, songwriting, and more.

Listen to “Sunshine Rock” below and let us know what you think.

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
