Unwed Sailor

The instrumental post-rock of Unwed Sailor has had a number of contributors, but since the group's inception in 1998 it has been guided by the vision of Johnathon Ford. Born in Oklahoma, Ford had been a member of Roadside Monument and Pedro the Lion. As a result of his own songs not melding with either, he formed Unwed Sailor in Seattle and has since been based in other cities including Chicago and Washington, D.C. Before moving to Chicago, Ford recruited David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), K.C. Wescott (The Vogue), and Melissa Palladino (Damien Jurado, Jen Wood, Danielson Famile) to record the 1999 EP Firecracker, originally released on Seattle's Made in Mexico and reissued on Philadelphia's Burnt Toast Vinyl. In 2001, Ford was joined by guitarist Nic Tse for The Faithful Anchor, with help from Dan Burton and Joe Brumley of Early Day Miners and Matthew Johnson of Roadside Monument. That same year, Ford collaborated with Ester Drang and members of Oklahoma country band Lasso for a joint project called Circle of Birds. Ford and Tse got help from drummer Matt Putman along with Matt Depper and James McAlister of Ester Drang for The Marionette and the Music Box, issued in 2003. In 2006, Unwed Sailor kept busy with The White Ox and an EP, Circles. Little Wars arrived in spring 2008. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi

Pandora is awesome for bands like this. You find one, and you find them all. I got introduced to unwed sailor, mogwai, russian circles, etc. etc. through first finding el ten eleven, which was introduced to me from my team sleep station.. Pandora, the greatest idea ever
Was going to see them again, then realized they were opening for Owl City... Also, the bass makes this band.
All negativity aside, Unwed Sailor is a truly original band, following the whims of their creativity wherever it takes them but still pumping out quality albums.
Keyboard makes this band. What up Brooks Tipton!
spider-mal
Made the Owl City concert in OKC even better! They are such nice guys, too. I got to talk to them :)
I heard The Garden from the Little Wars album and I really love it. No words need to be sung or spoken to make the music come alive. If anyone knows of other great post-rock like this, drop me a line!
Opened for Owl City in SLC.
that.brad.ki d
great band and great shows
These guys are really good. Really nice to listen to.
I saw them live in Orlando a few years back and got to know them through Pedro the Lion. Good stuff!
My favorite is Circles 2: Mesa!
Like Adam, I typed Mogwai into Pandora after a review of their new CD in my local paper. I'd never heard of them. Now I know of them and Unwed Sailor. Cool stuff!
