Before the Arcade Fire cemented Merge Records’ reputation as a world power of an indie label, it was Superchunk who had the title, when that breakthrough album wasn’t even a thought. Superchunk is adored for the manner in which they brandish some rather prickly tendencies in underground music, and transform it into easily digestible little singles. If there is a template for what indie rock bands as an idea looked and sounded like for a time, it was Superchunk who defined it. Supporting act Waxahatchee just might steal some of the group’s spotlight however, if their well-received performance at last year’s Chaos in Tejas festival—whose future is sadly now in possible fatal jeopardy—is any indication.
