Check out an unreleased Garbage song, “Subhuman Supersize Mix”

On Oct. 2, the 20th anniversary edition of Garbage’s self-titled debut album will be out — it includes all remixes and previously unreleased tracks from the rock band’s hugely popular album.
One of those unreleased songs is the blissfully long and grunge-y “Subhuman Supersize Mix,” which of course features Shirley Manson’s vocals — she can morph her voice from a growl to a pretty soar to a drugged-up cokehead. No one does it quite like her.

“Garbage” was originally released Aug. 15, 1995, and included the songs “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains.”

While we’re in a new generation of music, and 1995 is in NO WAY like 2015, the band’s mix of electronic, grunge and rock sounds still resonates.

Check out the audio of “Subhuman Supersize Mix”:

From Manson:

This is a very special occasion for all of us in garbage. We are particularly excited about the upcoming tour ­- the intent of which is pretty much the celebration of a 20 year long affair between us and those who have loved us. ­

You can buy the CD and digital configurations starting Oct. 2. A double-vinyl LP will be available Oct. 30 in Europe.

Superchunk to reissue “Come Pick Me Up”

Superchunk’s upcoming reissue of their 1999 album “Come Pick Me Up” will include eight bonus tracks as a digital download on CD and LP.

Listen to “Hello Hawk,”

In a press release, Mac McCaughan recalled recording the album at Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago:

“It was exciting to work downstairs in the big room at Electrical. For part of our visit we also slept there, in the dark except for lights on all the gear blinking. It snowed a ton the day we got there, and I didn’t go Superchunk come-pick-me-upoutside for the first five or six days we were there,” says McCaughan.

Superchunk bassist Laura Ballance detailed how she came up with the artwork for “Come Pick Me Up”:

“I was really into hooked rugs at the time and had acquired a few for my new house while scrounging around in antique malls and thrift stores, and I wound up taking photos of them for the package. They also inspired the floral pattern that runs up the edge of the painting.

“Another great friend, Claire Ashby, who had taken numerous band photos for us, took individual shots of all of us for the package. I asked everyone to pose doing something they really liked and in a place that made them comfortable. I really like seeing those portraits today and thinking about the choices that each of us made.”

Listen to Superchunk’s remastered “Hello Hawk” on Soundcloud.

“Come Pick Me Up” will be available as CD, LP and digital download on Merge Records.
