Tame Impala, who play tonight at Terminal 5, made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, performing "Elephant." watch that below.
Sure the Unwound reissues are sexy and exciting, but Justin Trosper and Brandt Sandeno have another project up their sleeve as well. Enter Survival Knife, who will release a debut 7" via Sub Pop on March 5. Check out the b-side from that single, "Name That Tune," below.
With that live LP finally in the rearview, Unwound can now get on the stick with respect to reissues. Enter the newly announced remastering of the post-hardcore crew's complete recordings, which will feature their seven LPs along with a gang of expanded/bonus content. Numero will also drop the previously unavailable Big Baby LP from Giant Henry, the high school project of members Justin Trosper and Vern Rumsey that evolved into Unwound. Stream a newly-unearthed Giant Henry song, "Super Nova," below.
That record will drop in time for Record Store Day 2013, but dates for the reissues are still TBA. Also still no word on a return to the stage, but here's to hoping they follow the same path as Codeine (who we interviewed).
Big Baby tracklist and song stream are below...
Unwound was a United States post-hardcore band based in Tumwater/Olympia, Washington. Formed in 1991, the band consisted of Justin Trosper (vocals, guitar, songwriting), Vern Rumsey (bass), and Brandt Sandeno (drums), all of whom had previously been in a band called Giant Henry. Brandt Sandeno quit Unwound in 1992 and was replaced by Sara Lund... After Unwound broke up Vern Rumsey formed Flora v. Fauna. Sara Lund formed Hungry Ghost with Andrew Price from the Irving Klaw Trio as well as joining the The Corin Tucker Band. In 2012 Brandt Sandeno and Justin Trosper formed Survival Knife...Unwound have been cited as an influence by many contemporary underground artists, including most notably Blonde Redhead, Mineral, xbxrx, Cave In and ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead -[Wiki]Post-hardcore greats Unwound split 10 years ago, but not without leaving a significant mark on the landscape. Those who missed or still miss their live show, can be there vicariously through Live Leaves. Originally slated for release in 2002, the record was culled from shows during the tour for their final LP, 2001's Leaves Turn Inside You. Check out the tracklisting and live video below, and order yours via Kill Rock Stars.
No word on any sort of return to the stage, but until then you can hear the frontman's thoughts on the live material below.
