Part of Merge 25: A Celebration of Merge Records' 25th Anniversary
Portastatic began as a solo project for Mac McCaughan, lead singer and guitarist of Superchunk and co-founder of Merge Records. Since then, it has evolved into a full-fledged band, which sometimes includes Superchunk guitarist Jim Wilbur and McCaughan’s brother Matthew. Since 1993, McCaughan has recorded several records as Portastatic drawing on a number of genres, including rock, instrumental soundtracks, and Brazilian music.
