Unwed Sailor is a road-tested instrumental band headed up by composer Johnathon Ford. The itinerant songwriter recently spent a year in Lawrence revamping Unwed Sailor's lineup and prepping material for "Little Wars," an album that was finally released last month after originating circa 2002. The nine-song LP sounds much like early-era Unwed Sailor: melodic post-rock with thick basslines, chiming guitars and deliberate structures. Ford has also shown a penchant for lethargic, atmospheric soundscapes in recent years, culminating in the dual 2006 releases "The White Ox" and "Circles."
