3. Superchunk - Learned To Surf (Merge) 

Well I never thought I would ever hear a new Superchunk record so imagine my suprise when this little baby turned up last week. It's a five track E.P. called "Leaves In The Gutter" and features songs which they have been playing in live shows over the last couple of years. It does sound as though Superchunk are preparing to unleash a new album into the world before we're very much older and on the strength of this I'm looking forward to it already.

Taken from the new compilation "Penthouse Showcase Volume Three".
