Swing South: Unwed Sailor

Always liked Johnathon Ford. Big fan of Roadside Monument. Remember seeing Unwed Sailor in Nashville, maybe with Saxon Shore, and instead of falling asleep and hating Unwed Sailor for sounding nothing like Roadside Monument, I fell in love with their engaging, not repetitive melody lines. I recognized the bass as a real instrument, with real capability, not background filler.

Haven't followed Unwed Sailor through all of their albums, but it sounds like the newest, Little Wars, is similar to the earlier incarnations.

Now with all that said, let's all declare what we really want to say: ROADSIDE MONUMENT DIED TOO SOON!
