Goddammit, I love Unwound!
 
Easily one of the best bands I've ever heard. Catch me on the right day, and I might say that I enjoy them even more than Sonic Youth. I honestly can't recall a single song by them that I dislike. They don't get namedropped enough these days, and I find it quite pitiful that I couldn't find a thread dedicated to their brilliance on SYG.

So, Unwound, here's to you! In the famous words of the late Rob Instigator, "Skronk on!"

And well 10 seconds in.....and it doesn't sound bad.....quite good actually...I'm just gonna keep typing till I'm finished hearing this song and well....it sounds pretty gosh darn aewsome. so now I'm still listening while they play....no lyrics yet...but it sounds liek they can come in at any time....and well...this keyboard sucs so I'm just gonna stop typing.

There's a million threads on here about Unwound.

Dr. Eugene Felikson 01.28.2011 02:52 PM

Ones specifically dedicated to them? I couldn't find shit.

Yr welcome EVOL.

some and one "official" for what it's worth.
 

repetition does not hurt (haha).

'Leaves turn inside you' is probably one of the albums I've heard the most.

Really good very loud:

lol nice joke.

Well, maybe I'm gonna have to get better at the search function, because I will tell you... that is NOT what you get when you search "Unwound".


Either way, great band - deserving of multiple threads. :D

knox 01.28.2011 03:17 PM

what's the problem anyway, it made me wanna listen to that album again right now.

noisereductions 01.28.2011 03:20 PM

yeah read my NR Essentials post Joe.

Dr. Eugene Felikson 01.28.2011 03:20 PM

They're like Sonic Youth, except without all the feminist nonsense, and songs that you only pretend to like.

If you can't see my tongue in my cheek, it looks quite similar to when Thurston's member is near-bursting through the side of Kim Gordon's mouth.

EVOLghost 01.28.2011 03:41 PM

hevusa 01.28.2011 07:22 PM

I had the pleasure of seeing them live. What an amazingly powerful band. Love them!

Jeremy 01.29.2011 03:43 AM

Unwound are a really, really consistent band. I think my two favorites from them are Leaves Turn Inside You (The obvious one) and New Plastic Ideas.... Fake Train is pretty damn good as well.

Probably my favorite Unwound song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WilH0XISBUQ

Leaves Turn Inside You is probably my LEAST favorite album.
Perhaps it is because I knew it was there last and I didn't want it to be so.

Dr. Eugene Felikson 01.29.2011 04:05 AM

New Plastic Ideas, and Repetition are my personal favorites.
