Next week, Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace Records will release Loose Power, the debut album by Survival Knife — which features former Unwound members Justin Trosper and Brandt Sandeno. It’s got a little bit of that band’s post-hardcore intensity, blended with some classic punk sounds, some prog-rock adventurousness and some good old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll riffs. It’s indie rock just like they used to do it in the days before mainstream audiences even knew what the hell that meant.
And if that sounds like something you want to hear (it does, trust us!), then you’re in luck. Pitchfork Advance is now streaming Loose Power in its entirety before its April 29 release date. Listen here.
