Just a couple months after their 13th album, Wild Loneliness comes out (2/25), we are excited to be reissuing NC indie rock vets Superchunk's second compilation of singles, B-sides, and EPs, originally released in 1995 shortly after their landmark album Foolish. It collects fan favorites from soundtracks such as “Shallow End” and B-sides like “On the Mouth,” as well as covers of The Magnetic Fields, The Verlaines, The Chills, and even Motörhead. AllMusic’s Fred Thomas says it all: “Incidental Music is an essential piece of the Superchunk discography and a snapshot of the band as it transitioned from the scrubby radiance of its early days into the more nuanced songwriting machine it became throughout the mid-’90s.” Exclusively for RSD 2022, the double LP makes its first reappearance on vinyl since its original release, with LP1 on opaque green and LP2 on opaque orange housed in a gatefold jacket.
Newly remastered for RSD, 1995's Incidental Music collects B-sides and unreleased tracks from Superchunk's fruitful early period, 1990 - 1994. Along with buried gems from the same recording sessions that would produce seminal 'chunk records like Foolish and No Pocky for Kitty, this collection also includes fan-favorite covers of songs originally by Magnetic Fields, The Verlaines, Motorhead and more. Available on color for the first time ever!
