Thank you Superchunk.

I started listening to these guys in High School. I bought the album “Here’s where the strings come in” in 97, 2 years after it came out. For the past 12 years its been in my regular listening rotation. I think Superchunk is majorly overlooked, not only for their fun pop sounds, but also for the fact that two of the members went off and started their own record label known as Merge Records. So who is on Merge Records? Bands like Arcade Fire and Neutral Milk Hotel with their album “In the Aeroplane over the Sea”, just to name a few.

Here’s a photo of me (HeidiHehnly) improving my mood with a little “no pocky for kitty” and “here’s where the strings come in”:

Recently I’ve been listening to “here’s where the strings come in” a lot more. I’ve been tired and cranky, and the only pick me up I seem to have is good old Superchunk. There’s something about the tracks Hyper enough, Silver leaf and Snowy tears, Iron on, Animated airplanes over Germany, and Eastern Terminal that just make my day a little better. So the moral of this post is, if you are having a rough time lately where beer, coffee, cookies, or chocolate are just not improving your daily routine, try some Superchunk. I promise, they’ll help.
