Numero Group Reveal Third Unwound Box Set
Published Jul 09, 2014The Numero Group will continue its loving reissue campaign behind Pacific Northwest punk crew Unwound this fall, having just delivered the details behind a third box set, No Energy.
This latest compendium actually hasn't received a proper due date yet, but Numero has outlined that it will be a 32-song set highlighting the band's 1995 LP The Future of What and 1996's Repetition. According to a press release, this particular time period had the band moving away from their post-hardcore tendencies to include elements of "kraut, D&B, and [Charles] Mingus."
As with previous box set instalments, No Energy also includes tracks plucked from vinyl singles and live recordings from the era. A 10,000 word essay from "Unwound diarist" David Wilcox, who had also contributed to the previous box sets, and era-specific photography are also a part of the package.
Down below, you'll find all of the tracklisting info, as well as streams of the previously unreleased "Seen Not Heard" (which initially thrives off a wriggly and moody post-hardcore groove before jumping into noisier territory) and a remastered version of Repetition's "Corpse Pose."
No Energy follows the early days-covering Kid Is Gone and the second volume of the series, Rat Conspiracy.
