Unwed Sailor Returns With First New Music In 11 Years

Jonathan Ford, the creative force behind Unwed Sailor, hasn’t released an album under the moniker since 2008’s Little Wars (Burnt Toast Vinyl), but today he offers up “Moon Coin,” a melody-driven post-rock excursion that’s the first sight line into the new album, Heavy Age set for release on May 3rd, 2019. 

Unwed Sailor has recorded Heavy Age in Louisville KY, with the band currently based in both Tulsa, Oklahoma and Birmingham, Alabama, and displays an image different from its predecessors—its leaden beats land heavier and bass churns harder. “With Heavy Age,” Ford says, “I wanted this to feel like an Unwed Sailor live record. Like if you came to an Unwed show, this is what you’d hear—heavy and bombastic, like grabbing someone by the shirt.”
