Unwed Sailor: Windy City Dreams

Mute the Charm is the upcoming album by Unwed Sailor, expected out on February 10th, 2023 through Spartan Records. First example, Windy City Dreams is an ode to the city of Chicago and Jonathon Ford's failed plans of moving there in the late nineties and early 2000s, as well as an exhibition of the new record's straightforward rock approach.

Mute The Charm is a back to the basics, primal record,” Jonathon Ford explains. “It’s instrumental music without all the dressings. Muting the Charm, digging in the dirt, swimming in the ocean, going back to the basics, feeling those primal feelings of nature, and reflecting those feelings in songs.

Windy City Dreams feels like a comfortable continuation of Heavy Age, Unwed Sailor’s very well received rock album from 2019, and cites inspiration from Roxy Music’s Avalon.

Ford continues, delineating the compositional direction and overall aim of the new album: “I want to transcend the barrier that being an instrumental band with no vocals can sometimes bring between the artist and the listener. When I sit down to write a song, I’m not writing a post-rock song, I’m writing a pop song. I’m singing through my bass lines. The bass is my voice and the notes are my lyrics. I love how bands like Tycho and El Ten Eleven have created their own voices through instrumental music that appeals to all listeners, not just post rock or instrumental music fans.
