Mac McCaughan has been creating heartfelt and catchy music in North Carolina for 25 years.
He has released more than 15 albums, both with his long-running indie rock band, Superchunk, and his semi-solo project Portastatic.
Until now, he never released an album under his own name. On Tuesday, McCaughan releases his first official solo debut Non-Believers. The album is inspired by the early 1980’s era of music when punk rock was evolving.
Host Frank Stasio talks with McCaughan about the album and his work.
