Ralph Lee “Mac” McCaughan is:

  1. the lead singer of Superchunk, a band I adore
  2. the lead singer of Portastatic, another great band
  3. a solo artist
  4. co-founder/owner of Merge Records, a bastion of indie rock and arguably the only decent semi-major label around.
  5. an insightful political commentator

Put them all together and you have this gem of a glass-half-full song for 2017: “Happy New Year (Prince Can’t Die Again)”
