Unwed Sailor: Little Wars
(Burnt Toast Vinyl)
release: March 18, 2008
style: instrumental rock, post-rock
[rating: ***1/2] The last outing from this multifaceted instrumental band was a lingering bore. So it's a happy moment to report that Little Wars is largely an improvement. Mainman Johnathon Ford, along with his latest cast of helpers, has got the bearings together for this one, allowing every instrument to work together to keep the engine running. Within the first minute, there's obviously something more special than the last couple records. Little Wars is creative and collected when it needs to be, while revealing qualities not heard in the Sailor's past decade of work. -Kenyon
