Tossing Seeds (Singles 89-91)


Alternative Pop/Rock

When they first burst onto the indie scene at the tail end of the '80s, Superchunk sounded like the greatest practitioners of chainsaw pop since the Buzzcocks invented the stuff. This collection of their early singles sides still delivers a sharp, glorious kick with smart lyrics, abundant energy, some epochal originals (especially the classics ""Seed Toss"" and ""Slack Motherfucker"") and some inspired covers (Sebadoh AND the Shangri-La's!). Essential and good noisy fun.

The Rubaiyat of Dorothy Ashby



Issued on Cadet in 1970, this is no ordinary jazz vocal album. It is exotic, mysterious, laid-back, and full of gentle grooves and soul. Time and space are suspended and new dimensions open up for anyone willing to take this killer little set on and let it spill its magic into the mind canal through the ears.
