From the ashes of Unwound comes Survival Knife. I caught their set a couple of months back and was immediately sucked in, whether they were playing it straight or going off on some unwieldy tangent. The only recorded material you're going to find is the 7-inch for "Traces of Me," which I'm listening to loud right now at 8:18 am on a Monday (it's only fitting that this is how my neighbors get introduced to Survival Knife). Needless to say, if you like guitar in your rock, then this new project from Justin Trosper and Brandt Sandeno slices and dices in all the right places. MARK LORE
