Two Superchunk songs recorded during the Wild Loneliness sessions that did not make the album comprise this 7-inch.

Mac McCaughan explains:

We recorded 2022’s Wild Loneliness at home over the course of a few months during lockdown. In keeping with the theory that ten songs is the perfect length for a record, we had to take off a couple songs that fit thematically—who doesn’t have days when everything hurts or you feel like making a break for it?—but musically couldn’t find a spot on Wild Loneliness. Perhaps because they are more traditionally “Superchunk”-sounding than the rest of the LP (“Everything Hurts” could be from Come Pick Me Up, and “Making a Break” has What a Time to Be Alive energy)? Who knows! So here are these misfits from the Wild Loneliness sessions, recorded at home in Chapel Hill and mixed by Wally Gagel in LA.
