Superchunk: Majesty Shredding
Buy! - (Merge)
This North Carolina band sounds totally rejuvenated on their first album in nine years. While 2001’s Here’s To Shutting Up found Superchunk aging gracefully, it wasn’t the band’s most exciting release, which makes Majesty Shredding that much more welcome. It’s a glorious return to peak form, stuffed with one great anthemic blast of catchy, well-crafted pop-punk after another, with surging guitar riffs, boisterous harmonies and fist-pumping shout-a-long choruses. Sure, they’re older and wiser now (meaning the lyrics are also more reflective), but they also sound vibrant, recharged and ready to rock the indie world again. 8/24/2010 - Don Yates
