iTunes Review

Majesty Shredding is Superchunk’s first album since 2001 and they pick right up where they left off, namely with a power-chord blast at the beginning of “Digging for Something.” It’s good to have them back. Not that they’ve been idle. Band members Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance run indie stalwart Merge Records, the label they co-founded in 1989, and McCaughan has also released six (good!) albums as Portastatic, his solo project, over the past decade. The album is what you’d expect and hope for from Superchunk: driving dual guitars, pounding drums and bass, fun, clever lyrics, and McCaughan’s distinctive and impassioned voice over a dozen sharply crafted songs. Rockers like “My Gap Feels Weird,” “Crossed Wires,” and “Rope Light” make you want to immediately play them again and sing along. The mid-tempo gem “Fractures In Plaster,” which is so well suited to the melancholic side of McCaughan’s voice, is followed by the infectious anthem “Learned to Surf,” while both “Slow Drip” and “Winter Games” are classic Superchunk. Majesty Shredding is straight-forward power-pop perfection.

Customer Reviews

Classic Super Chunk

I have been with these guys going on 20 years and they have not skipped a beat. This album is brilliant from start to finish.

Love Superchunk

Saw them sometime in the 90's and the show was amazing.

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...
