Superchunk - "Crossed Wires" b/w "Blinders (Fast vers.)"
that's our new single -- out July 7! you can preorder now from the Merge site. limited to 1000 copies on clear vinyl. comes with a download card that allows you to download both songs plus a demo version of "Crossed Wires" that will sound extra lo-fi once you have it in an iPod.
the two 7" songs we recorded recently with Scott Solter (producer of fabulous records by Mountain Goats, John Vanderslice, and others) producing, here in Durham at Overdub Lane. John Plymale (Indoor Living, Laughter Guns, Leaves in the Gutter) also was in on the action. We did some overdubs at my house. it's 2 new songs, and we recorded a couple more while we were at it. if we keep doing that we'll have an album before long, which is a radical concept, i know.
note the cover art by Will Yackulic, you can see more of his awesome work at the Jeff Bailey Gallery in NYC.
