Bob Mould

Silver Age

(Merge)

Sounds Like: The 51-year-old out Hüsker Dü legend’s been through many phases, and here he comes back to his frenetic, muscular, triumphant and cathartic noise rock. 

Free Association: Above all the sonic brilliance, there’s also intelligent songwriting.

For Fans Of: Sonic Youth x Sloan, Sugar’s Copper Blue , Pixies/Pavement, rock royalty.

 

 

The Avett Brothers

The Carpenter

(Universal Republic)

Sounds Like: Led by North Carolinian brothers-turned-Gap models, this second Rick Rubin-produced rootsy folk rock LP is their seventh, and it’s beautifully sophisticated.

Free Association: It’s pretty, but none of these songs’ll make you cry like the last album did.

For Fans Of: Mumford & Sons x Wilco, Willie/Waylon/Langhorne/Johnny, NPR country.
