The Appleseed Cast

One of their songs will come on my mp3 player and I’ll think damn this is GOOD! Who is this? And it’s always this band. I sometimes forget about them. They are decribed as a “unique “post-rock” sound hinging on inventive, intricate drumming, subtle guitar arpeggios and impassioned vocals.” Yup, that sums it up. Remember when “emo” meant Sunny Day Real Estate and not Panic! At the Disco? That’s how they sound. The music is really layered, which also indicates a high level of actual performance ability. Enough. Just listen to it, you’ll wonder why other bands don’t live up. They have come out with several albums, but the Low Level Owl double albums from 2001 are the standouts.
