After the production’s quick success, The Unbearables left the zombie motif behind and began further pushing the sonic envelope. The band has expanded with massive choral arrangements, a multi-array of synthesizers, woodwinds, and percussive instruments, all played with high-energy enthusiasm, astonishing Texas audiences as well as the press.
The Unbearables’ latest release, an EP called “Autonomy vs. Shame” is the first in a three-part series of concept EPs that musically portray the life cycle. Combining references to Greek Numerology, Jungian psychology, the Book of Genesis, and Alcoholic’s Anonymous 12-step program, each song in the series represents a numerical progression from birth through adolescence, middle age, old age, and ultimately honoring the end of life. Containing numerous time signature experiments—with each song reflecting in some way its numerical place in the larger story—this series of EPs represents a serious departure from anything else the band has tried before. The next in the series, “Intimacy vs. Isolation”, is due out in February 2009.
