Candy Apple Grey

Candy Apple Grey by Husker Du
Released: Mar 1986
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
With 1986's Candy Apple Grey, Husker Du left their indie roots, signed to Sire Records and ... nothing was really that different. Like X and the Replacements, major labeldom didn't expand their fanbase or sales much. Thankfully, Husker Du didn't change their "birth of grunge/alt country/indie rock/whatever" sound either. Grant Hart's scorching "Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely" got them a little college rock airplay, while Bob Mould's melancholic "Hardly Getting Over It" puts their mature songcraft front and center.
