Superchunk to reissue Here’s Where the Strings Come In for Record Store Day

Influential indie band (and Merge Records masterminds) Superchunk will be reissuing their 1995 studio album Here’s Where the Strings Come In for this year’s Record Store Day (4/16). The album, which has apparently been out of print forever, will be available on 180-gram vinyl (with mp3 download of course) and has been remastered from the original reel tapes. Also on the release will be acoustic demos from the album’s sessions in addition to a live performance from at 2003 Superchunk show at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC. You can read more about it here. I caught Superchunk live back in September, and it was one of the more memorable shows I had been to last year, so a live recording of them is certainly a treat.

Nostalgic will be listing this year’s most nostalgic Record Store Day releases and events (there’s a lot) in preparation for this Saturday. Be sure to check back for that.


  1. Funny, when I heard your band (at that place on Delancy St) I was talking to Debbie after and I listed out some bands I thought influenced you guys. Superchunk was on my list but (maybe she just misheard me) Debbie hadn't heard of them. So I said maybe they influenced other bands that influenced you.

    Anyway I really love Superchunk; I think Water Wings is pure genius.


  2. I heard you, Sean! I thought that was an interesting comparison :)
