11 Songs, 32 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After almost three decades in action, the level of energy Superchunk maintains here initially seems preternatural. But once you realize the songs were written in a flurry of angry, cathartic creativity right after the 2016 presidential election, the level of passionate punk-pop fury on display is a little more explicable. And when Mac and the gang sink their teeth into deceptively buoyant-sounding songs like the title track or "I Got Cut," with explosive guitars and earworm hooks in abundance, their outrage and artistry collide with gutsy glory.
