Superchunk is an American indie rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States, consisting of singer-guitarist Mac McCaughan, guitarist Jim Wilbur, bassist Laura Ballance, and drummer Jon Wurster. Formed in 1989, they were one of the bands that helped define the Chapel Hill music scene of the 1990s. Their energetic, high-velocity style and do-it-yourself ethics were influenced by punk rock.
If Merge and Superchunk populated a new cosmos, then Superchunk, recorded at Duck-Kee Studios in Raleigh and released on Matador in 1990, is the Big Bang. In one explosive half-hour, it trots out most of the styles and moods that Superchunk would then spend decades diligently exploring. Swinging introduces Superchunk’s pop-punk side, all basic bounce and elastic tempo, while Slow is a lofting, detuned dream-pop classic in which the band forgets it’s disaffected and exults in the sound.
