Former drummer and co-leader of iconic punk trio Hüsker Dü, Grant Hart—who wrote favorites like “The Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill” and “Diane”—pretty much vanished after a series of ’90s albums, solo and with Nova Mob, that never got the attention they deserved. (Barring a couple of unheralded singles, he spent the ’00s concentrating on visual art instead.) Though he certainly took his sweet time, Hart’s 2009 solo disc, Hot Wax, was a confident return. Backed by members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Hart kicked out a set of organ-driven rock showcasing his thoughtful, thematically ambitious lyrics, ranging from Buddhism to Greek mythology to mischievous imaginary friends. Appropriately enough, Hart released two live tracks last year in anticipation for The Argument. The double LP is based on John Milton’s Paradise Lost, and no release date has been announced.
