Backspace
115 NW 5th Ave.
 
[POST-ROCK] The Appleseed Cast kicks ass, but does it subtly. The band doesn’t melt your face with distortion, punishing drums, heavy bass lines or any of the obvious means rock bands tend to use. Instead, the musicians embrace variety through odd time signatures, sucking you into an energetic track with inventive hooks and refusing to play the same three chords over and over. You don’t even realize how intricate the layers of their songs are until the experience is practically finished, and by then you’re already having so much fun the details might not even matter. Sneaky like ninjas, the guys in the Appleseed Cast slay you with their unexpected musical savvy rather than beaning you with a sledgehammer.
