“I wanted to live, so I pretended to die/I had to shut down, cash out and get buried alive,” Nina Gordon confides on “The Gospel According to Saint Me,” from Veruca Salt’s 2015 comeback album, Ghost Notes. The singer-guitarist could just as easily be describing the quartet’s return to action in 2013 after various lineup changes. “Hatchets buried, axes exhumed,” the group teased on their Facebook page to announce the reunion of the original lineup, which also includes singer-guitarist Louise Post, bassist Steve Lack and drummer Jim Shapiro (Gordon’s brother). Ghost Notes is a welcome return, with Post and Gordon engaging in bittersweet harmonies as Lack and Shapiro hammer out grungy accents. “Wait, don’t grow up yet. … We’re wired and under-slept,” Post wails yearningly on the rueful romantic anthem “Eyes on You” as Gordon chimes in consolingly.
