Without changing their tensely wound, post-Hüsker Dü punk-pop style at all, Superchunk sound completely weary on Here’s Where the Strings Come In. No longer do their nervous, amateurish songs sound energetic – they sound tired and broken. This actually results in some really interesting music, as Mac McCaughan tries to reconcile his broken spirits with his passion for punk. These songs tend to have more resonance than by-the-books rave-ups like “Hyper Enough,” no matter how well those are written, and they suggest that Superchunk may be better off if they decide to revamp their signature sound completely.

1. "Hyper Enough"
2. "Silverleaf and Snowy Tears"
3. "Yeah, It's Beautiful Here Too"
4. "Iron On"
5. "Sunshine State"
6. "Detroit Has a Skyline"
7. "Eastern Terminal"
8. "Animated Airplanes Over Germany"
9. "Green Flowers, Blue Fish"
10. "Here's Where the Strings Come In"
11. "Certain Stars"

Here’s Where the Strings Come In is released on 9/19/95 via Merge. Buy remastered version on iTunes/Amazon
