If there’s one band that comes in at a close second after Pavement for my favorite 90s band, it’s Superchunk. I think indie rock and I think Superchunk. Not only was their music great but Laura Ballance and Mac McCaughan are the DIY masterminds who took music business into their own hands and voila! We have one of the best record labels in the indie scene yet. Of course, I’m talking about Merge Records. What’s not to love about this label as their roster has only grown with some impressive artists such as Arcade Fire, Camera Obscura, Dinosaur Jr., The Love Language, The Magnetic Fields and more.
However, I digress. Back in April 2009, they released new material for the first time in seven years in form of the EP, “Leaves in the Gutter.” Although it was just a lot of unreleased material (which still made it new material) it was great for us Superchunk fans. Now, I’m incredibly anxious as I wait for the release of a new full-length titled Majesty Shredding which will be released on September 14, 2010. Who’s getting excited with me? I know tons of you are and if you aren’t, you should be!
To get you ready, take a listen to an acoustic take on their song, “Kicked In.” Ah… alternative DIY 90s…
