UNWOUND ‘Repetition’

Apr 3, 2021 | Reviews

A sleek, adroit, post-hardcore classic

This would be the recommended starting point for anyone bringing fresh ears to Unwound’s discography. Hailing from Olympia, Washington, the group lurked in the shadows throughout the grunge years dishing up a sleeker, adroit, post-hardcore sound. Repetition, from 1996, retains their early punk catharsis bolted to trademark honed blades of guitar, and a deliciously movable rhythm section – at this point the exemplary Sara Lund had joined on drums. Never resorting to mainstream cliche the group upheld their fine career until their split in 2002.
