Unwound - New Plastic Ideas (1994)

Here is Unwound's second album to finish out today's double dose of abrasive 90s music. A very dynamic record from Olympia's bi-polar trio who alternate between tracks that punch with feedback laden power chords and slow simmering tunes that boil over in dramatic crescendos.

    1. Agreed. Most people prefer Repetition or Leaves Turn Inside You, but this has always been my favorite.
