We know of Mac McCaughan as a frontman for Superchunk, as well as co-founder of Merge Records. But he is on the page today in his third guise as solo artist, Mac McCaughan. Solo Mac has an album title Non-Believers scheduled for release on May 5. And just to make sure you care about that, he is releasing a single edit of album track "Box Batteries", paired with "Whatever Light". The title track is an upbeat slice of lo-fi, GBV/The Clean indie rock with a few streaks of punk. It makes me feel young, and I'm growing to like that in my music.
The single hits the streets tomorrow via Merge, and limited edition 7" versions will be available at certain records stores and from Mac on tour.
