Slow Note from a Sinking Ship
Slow Note From A Sinking Ship is Portastatic's second studio album. It was released on Merge Records on June 20, 1995.
The album was recorded at Duck Kee Studios by Jerry Kee, except Skinny Glasses Girl, The Angels of Sleep, Spooky, Running Water and Isn't That The Way, which were recorded by Mac McCaughan on a Tascam 424 4-Track cassette recorder "with little or no engineering involved."
The CD and vinyl versions of the album had different track listings and running orders. "Spooky" and the hidden track appear on the CD only. "Your Own Cloud" appears on the LP only. In addition the second side of the vinyl LP ends with an endless loop of synth sound from the ending of "In The Manner of Anne Frank."
All the Nations Airports (Deluxe Remaster)
Archers of Loaf
All the Nations Airports is the third studio album recorded by the indie rock band Archers of Loaf. Although the band was still signed to Alias Records the album was released by Elektra Records in 1996, making it the first to be distributed by a major label.
Songs of Drinking and Rebellion
Songs of Drinking and Rebellion is the first studio album released by the indie rock band Spent in 1995. The album was released on Merge Records and was followed by a tour with labelmates Superchunk. The album had no singles; however, a video for the song "View from a Staircase" was made.
Lifestyle is the seventh studio album by American indie rock band Silkworm. It was released on August 8, 2000 by the independent record label Touch and Go Records, making it their second on that label. After 1998's self-produced Blueblood, the band's friend and longtime recording engineer Steve Albini again returned to record the album, which was also produced by his girlfriend Heather Whinna.
Rat Tat Tat
Guided by Voices
Mag Earwhig! is a 1997 album release by indie rock band Guided by Voices. Following the dissolution of the group's "classic" lineup, band-leader Robert Pollard recruited Cleveland group Cobra Verde as his backing band, while retaining the Guided by Voices name. Most of Mag Earwhig! was recorded in a professional studio in Cleveland by the new lineup and marked a departure from band's trademark lo-fi sound, although additional songs were subsequently recorded in Dayton, and former members played on several tracks.
What a Time to Be Alive
What a Time to Be Alive is the eleventh studio album by the American indie rock band Superchunk. It was released in February 2018 by Merge Records.
I Hate Music
I Hate Music is the tenth studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk, released on August 20, 2013 on Merge Records.
Majesty Shredding is the ninth studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk. It was released on September 14, 2010 on Merge Records. It is the group's first studio album since 2001's Here's to Shutting Up.
Here's to Shutting Up
Here's to Shutting Up is the eighth studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk. Brian Paulson, who served as co-producer, previously worked with the band on 1994's Foolish.
On this album, the band continued to develop away from the fuzzy punk-pop of its earlier days to something more textured. Keyboards, strings and acoustic guitars abound, and even a pedal steel makes an appearance on "Phone Sex".
The band left "Phone Sex" out of the initial performances of the accompanying tour; with the 11 September 2001 attacks a painfully fresh memory, the members felt uncomfortable performing a song featuring the lyrics "Plane crash footage on TV / I know, I know that could be me."
The title of the album is taken from the opening of the song "Out on the Wing."
Come Pick Me Up (Remastered)
Come Pick Me Up is the seventh studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk, released in 1999. It is marked by the presence of co-producer Jim O'Rourke, a well-known figure in underground circles. Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster said that O'Rourke was selected because the band wanted someone "coming from a different head-space." O'Rourke helped the band decorate the album with string and horn touches that were not typical of their guitar-based sound. One of the horn players who appeared on the album is another well-known figure in underground circles, Shellac's Bob Weston.
The title of the album is taken from a line in "Hello Hawk," the album's first single.
Bass player Laura Ballance did the cover painting.
Here's Where the Strings Come In
Here's Where the Strings Come In is the fifth studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk. It was recorded at Fort Apache Studios from May 25 to June 4, 1995. The album was released by Merge Records on September 19, 1995.
"Green Flowers, Blue Fish" was originally recorded for the 1995 film Johnny Mnemonic. "Hyper Enough" is also featured in the video game NCAA Football 06, the 2008 film Yes Man and the 1996 film Tromeo and Juliet. The video for "Hyper Enough" depicted a dysfunctional Superchunk seeking help from a therapist.
Foolish is the fourth studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk. It was recorded November 30 through December 2, 1993, at Pachyderm Studios, by Brian Paulson and mixed by the band and Paulson at Steve Albini's home studio. The album was released by Merge Records in 1994.
The cover art is credited to the band's bassist, Laura Ballance. Ballance has stated that although the painting has generated much speculation into its deeper meaning, it was simply an "unpracticed" attempt to hark back to an American Music Club album cover. She was the only model available to her, and the dead rabbit was added after she had watched the Michael Moore film Pets or Meat.
Foolish was completed shortly after Ballance and the band's guitarist and lead singer, Mac McCaughan, had broken up. While Ballance rates the album as her third favorite in the band's catalog, she stated that, "....touring for Foolish was so hard. Listening to those words every night and feeling so mute. I didn't get to say anything, and here he was saying everything. I would be up there jumping up and down with tears streaming down my face.
Foolish is Superchunk's fourth studio album. It was recorded November 30 through December 2, 1993, at Pachyderm Studios, by Brian Paulson and mixed by the band and Steve Albini. It was released by Merge Records in 1994.
The cover art is credited to the band's bassist, Laura Ballance. Ballance has stated that although the paining has generated much speculation into its deeper meaning, it was simply an "unpracticed" attempt to hark back to an American Music Club album cover. She was the only model available to her, and the dead rabbit was added after she had watched the Michael Moore movie, "Pets or Food."
This is the second consecutive Superchunk album where the band recorded a song of the same name, but didn't put it on the album. The US vinyl edition of the album included "Foolish" on a bonus 7" single. The song eventually appeared on the band's Incidental Music compilation.
The video for "Driveway to Driveway" is a takeoff on the classic film The Philadelphia Story. In the video, drummer Jon Wurster plays a rich buffoon and singer Mac McCaughan plays a scrappy lower-class guy both competing for the affections of Ballance's character. Guitarist Jim Wilbur plays a butler.
On the Mouth
On the Mouth is the third studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk. The album was recorded September 14–20, 1992, at West Beach Studios, engineered by Donnell Cameron, and produced by John Reis and Superchunk. It was released by Matador Records in 1993.
On the Mouth marked the debut of drummer Jon Wurster, who replaced Chuck "Chunk" Garrison.
The band also has a song called "On the Mouth," but it is not on this album. It first appeared as b-side for the single version of "Mower."
American alternative rock band Jimmy Eat World covered "Precision Auto" for its 2010 album Invented. Fucked Up and Tom Scharpling, of Scharpling and Wurster fame, covered "Precision Auto" at the Matador at 21 festival in Las Vegas. Post-punk band Les Savy Fav covered "Precision Auto" on "Score! 20 Years of Merge Records: The Covers!"
No Pocky for Kitty
No Pocky for Kitty is the second studio album by American indie rock band Superchunk. It was recorded April 21–23, 1991, at the Chicago Recording Company by Steve Albini and released on Matador Records in 1991, and reissued by Merge Records in 1999.
Albini is not credited in the liner notes, which read "Produced with eyes closed by Laura, who sat in the right chair." The reference is to Laura Ballance, the group's bassist.
Pocky is a popular Japanese snack food.
