Copper Blue/Beaster File Under: Easy Listening (Merge)

Bob Mould's other buzzsaw-guitar trio filled in between Hüsker Dü and his erratic solo career. The band's three records – the 1992 debut Copper Blue, the following year's Beaster EP, and the 1994 swan song LP – get the deluxe reissue treatment here. The three-CD Copper Blue (paired with Beaster) and double-disc File Under are loaded with B-sides and concerts, but it's the original spiky indie-punk songs that still sting.
