Later this week, veteran North Carolina yelpers Superchunk, one of the greatest and most consistent indie rock bands of all time, will release their new album What A Time To Be Alive. The new LP follows 2013’s great I Hate Music, and it has nothing to do with the Drake/Future album of the same title. Superchunk have always sounded fired-up, but the new album finds them in a vein-popping apoplectic mood, surveying the absurdity of today’s world. We’ve already posted early singles “I Got Cut,” “Break The Glass,” and the title track, as well as the Waxahatchee/Stephin Merritt collab “Erasure.” And right now, you can stream the whole album at NPR. So go do that.
What A Time To Be Alive is out 2/16 on Merge.
