I’ve long been a fan of Olympia, Washington’s Justin Trosper. His band Unwound made some superb albums. I’ve previously posted tracks from Trosper’s latest band, Survival Knife.
The group has a debut album due April 29 called Loose Power.
Here’s “Fell Runner,” the first track off it:

In the early ’90s Olympia, Washington’s Unwound made a glorious noise. Now the group’s earliest recordings — cassette-only demos, early 7”s, a KAOS radio broadcast, material tracked live in a local Olympia basement, and all of what became 1994’s Unwound — are available. Thirty-four tracks which preceded the group’s debut, 1993’s Fake Tree, have been released in a three-record box set that also includes a album-sized 24-page booklet and a download card .
