Taiyo Kimura's video for Superchunk's hardcore-inspired tune "Staying Home" is a bizarre, low-tech, and kind of gross (as in the eating curry and rice from the toilet in a Mac mask bit) clip, but a perfect fit. Mac McCaughan encountered Kimura's work at a gallery show in Durham, NC, hung out with him in Tokyo, and eventually approached him about doing a video for a tune from the new I Hate Music. In an ART INFO post, McCaughan says of Kimura, “He always manages to do this thing in videos where you kind of think you know what you’re looking at, then you realize you’re not sure what you’re looking at.”

We got our first taste of Superchunk's upcoming I Hate Music LP back in May, in the form of a teaser trailer with a few new music snippets and footage of frontman Mac McCaughan spray paint stenciling the album's lettering. The announcement also detailed a deluxe version of the album on colored vinyl with a bonus 7" of two non-album tracks and your very own diecut I Hate Music stencil, which you can check out in the GIF below. Oh, and when you make homemade Superchunk shirts with the stencil, please let it dry before stuffing it back in the sleeve. 

I Hate Music is out August 20 from Merge. Head to Pitchfork to see the band's full tour dates.
