• unwed sailor Little Wars (LP, £17.95)

    label: Burnt Toast

    "Little Wars" is the band's most ambitious and complex release yet, building on melodic lessons and recording techniques learned over the last several albums. Not content to follow up with their energetic 2000 debut full-length, "The Faithful Anchor," with a mere sequel, the band recorded 2003's "The Marionette and the Music Box," challenging its fan base with a Peter and the Wolf inspired, classically influenced fairy-tale. In 2006, Unwed Sailor released "The White Ox" and "Circles." "Little Wars reflects both the depth and breadth that the band has developed through these diverging releases and its live show.
