Two brand new songs from Superdrag!

Superdrag fans have been lying awake at night for the past four years on their Stratocaster-print pillowcases, tossing and turning while they ponder the aborted run of this fine Knoxville band, wondering to themselves what kind of songs may still have been nestled within them when the final incarnation of the band split in 2003.

Today, they wait no more.

Superdrag has recently reformed in their original lineup and posted two brand new songs on their MySpace page this morning with the session information listed as “4-Track 2007.” I am very excited by how good these sound. This first track preserves the classic Superdrag sound — fuzzy guitars, clattery drums and edgy-but-perfect harmonies. Plus John Davis uses the word “immolate” which makes the vocabulary freak in me do a little jig. Somewhere his high school English teacher is smiling.

One other track (the hazier resistance of “Live and Breathe”) is streaming at Let’s all go tell em how happy we are to hear them back again.

  • Seeing them in NYC, then reading now that there is another NYC show planned (with Nada Surf!!), AND an album, and then hearing these two stellar new songs, all of which happened only a short time after John Davis’ Arigato! finally dropped . . . well, i just haven’t been able to come to grips with it all. It’s like wishing for a new guitar for Christmas, and your dad buys you Fender. The whole company.

    And just to clarify, those pillowcases are covered in Jazzmasters, not Strats.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
