Superchunk, Ty Segall, No Age lead new release day
The new release schedule is revving up a little early this year with some big indie artists coming out before the heavy fall schedule of albums. For me, this is a super Tuesday with releases from Superchunk, Ty Segall and No Age.
I’ll elaborate on each individual album later but I’d say the common thread is that each of these artists keep a foot in the familiar while stretching a bit. So far, I like and recommend all three. Ty Segall’s album Sleeper matches up closest with the 2011 album Goodbye Bread. No Age taps the brakes on An Object. Going strong for almost a quarter century, Superchunk’s I Hate Music actually is the most adrenaline-fueled release of the three new albums.
Other releases of note out today: Zola Jesus’ Versions and Crocodiles’ Crimes of Passion.
