Regular readers may recall previous expressions of doubt that “post-rock” is an actual thing, consisting as it does of a rock band playing rock music, often in the form of a rock instrumental. Be that as it may Johnathon Ford – one-time member of Pedro the Lion and Roadside Monument, presents a new offering in his expansive interpretation of post-rock instrumental music under the band name Unwed Sailor. The new album, the first in eleven years, is ‘Heavy Age‘, it is out May 3rd and ‘Moon Coin‘ is the first track released from it. And it, umm, rocks some, in a melodic shoegazey way. Permission to discretely jive has been obtained.
