Superchunk's new single "Digging For Something" is a powerpop gem of Hope Diamond proportions. Energetic guitars do most of the heavy lifting, but the drums and Mac McCaughan’s vocals move their fair share of earth as well. John Darnelle supposedly sings back-up on the track, continuing the weird trend of taking a man with a very distinct voice and basically blending him into nothingness behind the song. Weird. Majesty Shredding, their ninth LP, is due out this fall. Check the dates for their accompanying tour (which they said would never happen again) and listen to "Digging For Something" over at Stereogum. Good to have these guys back.
