Superchunk’s Mac McCaughan has shared “Staring at Your Hologram”, an instrumental remix of the entire Non-Believers album released earlier this year. Presented in one track, “Staring at Your Hologram” is streaming now streaming below via Mac’s Bandcamp page.
In addition, the instrumental album will be available as an LP on January 29. Limited to a pressing of 500 on translucent yellow vinyl, each copy will be hand-numbered by Mac and available exclusively from him on tour.
Here is Mac’s description of the project: For the most part, I took away the drums and the vocals, rearranged some parts, and brought instruments to the fore that in the original album were more of a bed for the guitars and vocals. If the most obvious influences on Non-Believers are bands like New Order or Cocteau Twins, then for this version of the album I was drawing on a different part of the ’80s landscape and trying to imagine what it would sound like if Arthur Russell or Cluster made an album by remixing the basic tracks.
