Mac is blessed by the lord.

"If you can imagine music that can heal heartbreak or emotional distress.. this is it. Not just this album, everything by this band."
An album with depth

"For a band that has been accused of never changing their sound (and lauded for the same), Indoor Living signals an attempt at adding depth to the Superchunk sound. The immediate difference being the addition of keyboards to the mix. The keyboards add warmth and fuzz to a great sounding album. They stand out particularly on "Marquee" adding harmony to Mac's falsetto vocals and adding scree and confusion to the "noise" break in the song. There are some laid back songs here as well as the uptempo pop they helped define. "Nu Bruises" shines as an instant standard. At the Lounge Ax show where i bought the album the crowd was already yelling requests for this brand new song. "Popular Music" is the great story of Merge and all underground labels as Mac sings: "I've got my ear to the ground and i'm listenin' for you." One of my favorites on the album is the slower "Song for Marion Brown." Mac being into the avant garde, this song details the frustration that may have befallen the relatively unknown sax player who played with John Coltrane. There is definitely a maturity in the songwriting and it is also reflected in the album production. I love many Superchunk albums but this album remains one of my favorites for that reason. I think the drum sound they got at Echo Park (Bloomington, IN) is by far the best on any of their albums. All in all one of my faves. 4 and half *'s"
More great music from a great band

"On their 6th album proper, Superchunk continues to mature while still holding onto much of the energy of their earliest efforts. The most "experimental" of their discs, Indoor Living includes incorporation of some audible organ parts (as opposed to the slight dabbling on "Here's Where the Strings Come In") and more toying with odd time signatures. Don't be misled by those words, though - this is still an indie rock/pop record , and accessible from the first listen. However, much like "Foolish" was a big step out that came together with earlier work on "Strings" I think this record will be more of an influence on the next record than a complete change in style. In fact, I've heard some new Superchunk songs live, and they sound much closer to the type of music on "Strings" than on this album. I'm very much looking forward to the new record.Note that this record contains "Watery Hands", a song I consider to be one of Superchunk's best ever. If you can, though, get the "Watery Hands" single, since it has, in my opinion, a better mix of the song."
