Superchunk still kicks out great anthems
It’s unlikely Superchunk is ever going to record another anthem like Slack Motherfucker. Yet more than two decades after that unforgettable song, the band continues to make anthemic music that really takes off. Try not to like Me & You and Jackie Mittoo off Superchunk’s latest album, I Hate Music. The new release even sports a 75-second, mosh pit-approved number, Staying Home. Superchunk hasn’t really mellowed with age and, for that, I’m thankful. I Hate Music is honestly one of the best rock albums of the year.
Superchunk plays Saturday ahead of the Hold Steady (an unbelievable one-two punch) at the Hideout’s annual block party. The fest gets started Friday night with the Great Neko Case headlining.
