Bob Mould – “I Don’t Know You Anymore”

Bob Mould is such a veteran presence in indie rock that he was already an icon when the Merge Records braintrust, themselves veteran indie rockers, was just getting started touring as members of Superchunk. The two institutions are indeed merging for Mould’s new Beauty & Ruin, and today they’ve unveiled the album’s second single after “Hey Mr. Grey.” It’s called “I Don’t Know You Anymore,” but the title belies the fact that anyone who’s spent even a little time with Mould’s hard-charging guitar pop will find it comfortingly familiar. He’s backed on it by Jason Narducy and Jon Wurster. Listen below and don’t even bother trying not to hum along.
