Formed in the aftermath of the demise of post-hardcore band Rodan, Tara Jane O’Neil’s The Sonora Pine released a brace of crestfallen but beautiful indie-rock albums in the mid-Nineties. 1997’s ‘II’ was the second of these, recorded as a trio after guitarist Sean Meadows had quit, and the group called it a day soon afterwards. Remastered from the original tapes for its twenty-fifth anniversary, this hidden gem is reissued with previously unseen photos.
