The hook of those crunched out chords from Jim in the back. I have a very long history with this record, and will try to keep my ramblings under ten pages... Ah...to this day, I remember that conversation. Album: Here's Where the Strings Come In In fact, the times I fail to deliver probably outnumber the times I actually provide useful material these days. I can't really describe it properly. Who knows, and for the record i don't fully agree with Malimus's reading, up above. Really, Malimus? © 2020 Treble Media. Recorded following the breakup of McCaughan and Ballance, there’s more than a twinge of bitterness and melancholy that hangs over Foolish (reflected in its disturbing and kinda ugly dead-rabbit album art). On my first listen, i was impressed at the diversity Superchunk had managed to show in just ten minutes. I wish the nights were warm again this month. But let's ignore their performance habits and go over the rest of the songs on this record. I mean, what the heck is McCaughan yelling on The First Part? I seem to remember that we were in the car, on the way to Athens to see some band or another, when Water Wings came on the stereo and i said, "This song is so happy. This song is not really about winter. Sweetest little riff to pen. All I can do is play the disc, try to get you to listen, and point towards the moon in awe. If so, you'll need to disable it when using this site, as it spams the websites you visit with fake requests. However, the murky recording really fits the melancholy mood of the lyrics and helps make the whole thing into a kind of dark record. I love the murkiness, the lyrical bitterness, the furious pace of some songs, and the slow meandering of the others. Fast, energetic punk is the template for much of what goes on here, but they add so much to it.

I'd forgotten how depressing the end of this album was. It's about sleeping alone. When you say "Superchunk" to me, this (along with. I've attempted to convey the essence of Foolish to any number of friends over the course of the years, and I've not once been successful. Now, the exception to this "don't perform Foolish live" rule is the fourth tune, Driveway to Driveway, which was a hit for Superchunk. This is a song by my most favorite rock and roll band, Superchunk, called "Like a Fool," from the album "Foolish." McCaughan's voice is usually much more clearly recorded, and the guitars are usually more distinguishable. The previous three records and one compilation are all pre-cursors, the things they did to get here. Because he wrote a song about it. I played this record for everyone i could, introducing Malimus and Tracers (and many others) to the wonders of this record. Go and get a copy, you can thank me later.

Artist: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superchunk Their previous two albums had only occasionally hinted at a twangy, emotional pop song like “Driveway to Driveway,” in which McCaughan laments “I thought that it was you I had chased/ driveway to driveway, drunk.” And even when the band does rock out a bit more, via “Saving My Ticket,” they do so with restraint and elegance, inevitably inviting the all-too-familiar refrain that it was a more “mature” album. The first time i listened to this record i went along with Superchunk on their dark journey, through slow songs that spoke of quiet pain, and fast ones that screamed anger, and i enjoyed every minute of it. The first thing i note listening to the record today is that the production can be described as "a little murky". Begin with a long, slow, melancholy fade in, then explode with fast guitars and yelling. 12:28. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Merge-Records/88476979019 Label: http://www.mergerecords.com/ Without Blinking is by far my favorite song on the album. Is that the wall where you marked off the days?". A masterful and breathtaking set of songs, An album that radiates the feeling of slow emotional collapse, Album of the Week: "infectious even in its most confrontational moments" -, How Mercyful Fate’s “Into the Coven” became a focal point during the Satanic Panic, P.E. On Foolish McCaughan pushed himself as a lyricist, and i am sorry that it took whatever tragedy he endured to make him push himself so, but i really enjoy the output. We were both philosophy majors at a small liberal arts school on the north side of Atlanta. To this day i still think that this is the perfect way to start a record. They think that Superchunk's been all downhill since. We are hoping to eventually work on a solution for this when we have the resources to do so. http://www.mergerecords.com/ Mac plays a repeated arpeggio against it, in eights. He spits into his hand. Must be a North Carolina thing.). It did not have a lot in the way of liner notes, but whatever. What's going on there? Weird i know, but that's not the important part of the story. Album: Indoor Living Introduction to Superchunk All of the guitars tend to blur together into a kind of roar, the drumming is flat and distant, and the voice is sometimes almost lost in the mix, while very out front at other times. The keys are the same keys introduced on Indoor Living, only Superchunk don't seem embarrassed about using them now. Then Mac comes in with: I still have briars in my clothes. A drink in every hand. You see, at the time i lived in Brookhaven, and had a long commute on GA 400 every day. But at the time, the band had essentially leapt from being a hard-charging indie rock combo to one that had become more somber and introspective. Glad I still have the scrapes to prove. There's little that will bond you to a compatriot like a 9AM History of Philosophy course detailing the thinking of the Middle Ages. We could stay up all night. At times the lyrics are understandable, and at times they are lost in the guitars. Mailmus: That's a good job of noting the way it opens. You (or someone with the same IP address as you) might be using a script or program to download pages from this site automatically. It's a great tune, with an immediately recognizable melody, and Superchunk do this in concert almost every time i see them. It has everything to do with an inability to describe the moon. It's not for luck anymore. Then one evening, as i was driving by the old Atlanta CD store in Brookhaven, that song was the last one of a set.
