“New Plas­tic Ideas (re-is­sue 1994)” NUMERO

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

Avail­able now. An al­bum Max­i­mum Rock ‘N’ Roll deemed not punk enough to re­view, Unwound’s 1994 sopho­more 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 post­punk-ob­sessed lit­tle brother.
