Unwound - The Future of What
Yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing one of the best American bands from the esteemed Olympia, WA scene of the 1990's.
Their sound is one of destitution, anger, madness, and beauty as well. But not in an overt, cartoonish, Deftones-esque way... which in my opinion is low hanging fruit aggression. Rather, Unwound embrace dissonance in both harmony and chord progression to create a musical environment that's grey and depressed, with moments of churning, wild, desperate ferocity.
The Future of What is the band's third record, originally released in 1995. Many of their most beloved songs are from this record.
