Recently featured as one of our 15 Most Anticipated Upcoming Releases of 2013, Superchunk’s curiously titled new LP, I Hate Music, finally arrives on August 20 via Merge. But luckily the veteran group keeps releasing tracks from the album to quell the anticipation.
 
Following up I Hate Music’s first single “FOH,” today the band unveiled the album’s second track “Me & You & Jackie Mittoo,” from which I Hate Music derives its title. Though “Me & You & Jackie Mittoo” sounds like a title for a children’s story, the track itself is strikingly mature; it’s a concise 2 minutes of flawlessly executed power-pop. Superchunk may despise music, but tracks like these render it pretty darn difficult for their audience to sympathize with that hatred. Check out the track, along with Superchunk’s upcoming tour dates, below.
