Superchunk - Here's to Shutting Up (2001) Retail CD
Here's To Shutting Up is the eigth studio album by Superchunk. Starting out as one of many late-80s bands in the Husker Du mould, then slipping easily into the pop-punk grunge scene, Superchunk received a great deal of press coverage but never sold in the quantities their sparkling, if often ramshackle, songs deserved. Thankfully, they persisted--this is perhaps their best work yet. Recorded with Brian Paulson of Slint and Uncle Tupelo fame (he also worked on their 1994 LP, Foolish), Here's to Shutting Up shows they've matured well as songwriters. No longer slaves to pace and noise, they treatmore… their sometimes fragile melodies more preciously, allowing all their influences to creep to the fore. Despite its seamy title, "Phone Sex" is sweetly embellished by country guitar then, during "Florida's on Fire" and "Act Surprised", bassist Laura Ballance adds a moving, child-like harmony to singer Mac McCaughan's soft, near-feminine tones. This is genuinely beautiful. Beyond, there's also the atmospheric, quietly juddering "The Animal Has Left Its Shell", the cheap but affecting keyboard of "What Do You Look Forward To?" (at 7 minutes it's still not long enough) and, for longstanding fans, the messy, up-tempo pop of "Rainy Streets" and "Art Class". And there's a track called "Drool Collection". What more could you want? --Dominic Wills
