SUPERCHUNK - WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE VINYL (LTD. ED. PINK & CLEAR SWIRL)
LIMITED EDITION PINK & CLEAR SWIRL VINYL
Release Date: 16th February 2018
The American indie-rock legends are back with their most vital and important record in a long while. Reflecting the current state of affairs in their country and the world over, Superchunk produce an urgent thrash of punk-rock passion which is as catchy as it is cathartic!
"Like so much of Superchunk’s music in the band’s nearly three decades together, the songs on What a Time to Be Alive meet rage and anxiety head-on with the catharsis and exhilaration of loud punk fire and vulnerable pop energy. Like 2013’s I Hate Music, which focused on death, loss, and the role of music in an aging life, the new record brings spirit to the frontlines of pain—it’s as defiant as it is despairing, as much a call to arms as a throwing up of hands. The record features more guest backing vocalists than any previous Superchunk album, including Sabrina Ellis (A Giant Dog, Sweet Spirit), Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee), Stephin Merritt (The Magnetic Fields), Skylar Gudasz, and David Bazan."
