Veteran of indie champs Pedro The Lion and Roadside Monument, Seattle’s Johnathan Ford calls his instrumental group Unwed Sailor. Perfect name, really — their music sounds like the soundtrack to the life of an unwed sailor. Here they set sail for Oaxaca, on the southern coast of Mexico. It’s a sprawling epic of ambient bigness, and lush trellises of blooming guitars. Godspeed You Black Emperor meets Edge and Brian Eno for tea on the high seas.
