iTunes Review

Chapel Hill, North Carolina’s Superchunk faded away in the new century after spending much of the ‘90s at the top of both indie rock fan and critic lists. Solo projects and family duties gave outsiders the impression the band was done, aside from the occasional live show reunion. But come 2009 the band sounds completely recharged on this EP. “Learned to Surf,” also reprised as an acoustic demo, immediately slams up with the band’s ebullient noise and hooks driving down the centerline. Mac McCaughan’s turn at the vocal mike brings forth “Misfits & Mistakes” (a song that appeared in different form for the Aqua Teen Hunger Force soundtrack). The tune twists into a torrent of Keith Moon-like drum rolls from Jon Wurster. “Screw It Up” and “Knock Knock Knock” further showcase the group’s comfortable dynamic that portends great things in their reunited future.

Misfits & Mistakes

I have been looking for a good recording of this song ever since I heard Meatwad sing it. If nothing else, buy Misfits & Mistakes.

at last

This may just be a collection of a few scattered recordings from the past few years, but it is still a fantastic set of songs. These fit together as nicely as Here's Where The Strings Come In ever did, even reminding me of that album's vibe at times. I hate saying anything is a "return to form" these days, but this is a more guitar heavy and rock-oriented venture than the last couple of Superchunk LP's. Misfits and Mistakes is as urgent and intense as anything they have ever done (please forget its inclusion on the ATHF movie's soundtrack while listening), and the rest of this EP does not disappoint. Mac's lyrics are better than ever, and whisperings from the band and Merge seem to indicate this is a clearing out of sorts in preparation for a new LP. If this EP is indicative of the direction they're going, we are all in store for yet another Superchunk classic.


Thank God they finally released "Misfits & Mistakes" out for us to listen to....there's other songs on this EP? Well make sure you get "Misfits & Mistakes", it's fantastic!

Perhaps no band was more emblematic of the true spirit of American indie rock during the 1990s than Superchunk, the pride of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Following the D.I.Y. ethic to the letter, the bandmembers operated solely by their own rules, ignoring all passing trends by sticking to their trademark sound -- typified by the buzzing guitars and high, impassioned vocals of frontman Mac McCaughan -- and rejecting all major-label advances in favor of the unlimited freedom afforded by owning their...
