Album: Majesty Shredding
. . .
While how much I loved Majesty Shredding was a bit of a surprise, the album itself really wasn’t, as Superchunk had actually released some music in 2009, most notably the Leaves in the Gutter EP, which featured “Learned to Surf” and some other songs that didn’t make Majesty Shredding.
I grabbed that one from eMusic, but I totally missed “Crossed Wires” which came out as a 7″ single. But both those releases go to one of the reasons I loved Majesty Shredding: it wasn’t released because of contractual obligation or even the need to put out another record: instead, it was released because they had all of these great songs. Or at least that’s how it came across to me.
