July 29th Catch of the Day – Unkle

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

The much anticipated 3rd album, War Stories, has finally arrived. Chillville favorites, Unkle, have again produced one of the finest albums this year. It is a little more aggressive than the past two, due to guest vocals from rockers Josh Homme (Queens of The Stone Age) and Ian Astbury (The Cult). However, it still has several key ambient and chill moments. My catch is “Burn My Shadow”, which features Ian Astbury. Go get the album!
