By today's standards (or more accurately, stereotypes) San Diego's long defunct Chune would be regarded as something of a proto-emo relic. True, this quartet did bear the wrought hallmarks of such bygone Caulfield Records bands as Boys Life, but in addition, Chune exuded a math-y finesse, buttressed with dense, broadsiding dynamics that put them squarely in league with Drive Like Jehu and Spavid, the latter of whom I've previously dedicated a post to. Lengthy is a word that's duly apropos for most of the selections on Burnt, but the band falls shy of any ponderous ennui. Chune would deliver an even more convincing follow-up in three-years time, Big Hat, No Cattle, which can be obtained at this fine location.
