Unwed Sailor Little Wars
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Burnt Toast
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
A full decade into their career, the rotating-member post-rock troupe Unwed Sailor has remained largely undiscovered. Based around the compositions of Johnathon Ford, known for his time spent with avant-hardcore pioneers Roadside Monument, the group abandons the crescendo-based hyperbole of their peers for some nuanced subtlety on Little Wars, their ninth release. Opener “Copper Islands” is guided by upbeat guitars and keys while the title track ebbs and flows with washes of synthesizers. As the album progresses, each song is given enough room to develop without being overshadowed by melodrama.
