Mac McCaughan, Flesh Wounds (Back Room) 

When: Sat., May 23, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $12
Superchunk and Merge Records co-founder Mac McCaughan recorded Non-Believers, his first LP under his own name, in the basement of his Chapel Hill home. The process was protracted and private, with McCaughan coupling layers of synthesizers and drum machines with lyrics about childhood memories and mishaps late at night or early in the workday. The record is warm and inviting, McCaughan’s nasal hooks ensconced in luxurious self-production. To put those same songs onstage, though, he knew he needed to add some muscle. In recruiting the great garage rock trio Flesh Wounds, who issued a 7-inch on Merge last year, McCaughan ostensibly added some outward gusto to his individual, indrawn approach. When they come to the Cradle’s Back Room, they’ll be in the middle of a brief tour, hopefully in peak, out-of-the-basement form. —Grayson Haver Currin
