The Unwinding Hours - The Unwinding Hours (2010)

Singer Craig B and guitarist Iain Cook from the Scottish band Aereogramme - have formed a new band called The Unwinding Hours. It's an impressive reboot that oscillates somewhere between atmospheric post rock and slow-core. After my first listen, it reminds me of Aereogramme's debut album 'A Story in White' the most, but with a few more quieter songs. Opener 'Knut' is great; Craig's unmistakable vocals are set against a backdrop of slow-building guitars, drums and simple piano patterns, which eventually become lost under an explosion of distortion.
