• unwound New Plastic Ideas (LP, £19.50)

    label: The Numero Group

    An album Maximum Rock ’N’ Roll deemed not punk enough to review, Unwound’s 1994 second effort was a lethal depth charge aimed at major label grunge and independent hardcore alike. From the off-kilter, vertiginous rhythm of “Entirely Different Matters” to the neck-snapping velocity of “What Was Wound” to the relentless pounding at the end of “All Souls Day”, New Plastic Ideas is the Sonic Youth-loving older sister to Fake Train’s post-punk-obsessed little brother. “If you’re seeking catharsis, here it is.” —Mother Jones. TRACKLISTING: A 1. Entirely Different Matters 2. What Was Wound 3. Envelope 4. Hexenszene 5. Abstraktions / B 1. All Soul’s Day 2. Usual Dosage 3. Arboretum 4. Fiction Friction
