Unwound "New Plastic Ideas"

An album Maximumrocknroll deemed not punk enough to review, Unwound's 1994 sophomore effort was a lethal depth charge aimed at major-label grunge and independent hardcore alike. From the off-kilter, vertiginous rhythm of "Entirely Different Matters" to the neck-snapping velocity of "What Was Wound" to the relentless pounding at the end of "All Souls Day," "New Plastic Ideas" is the Sonic Youth-loving older sister to "Fake Train's" post-punk-obsessed little brother.
