Sweet Apple "Sing The Night In Sorrow (Tee Pee)"
Supergroup of sorts Sweet Apple, and purveyors of glittery throwback power-pop, are back with a new riff-heavy release. Sing The Night In Sorrow (Tee Pee Records) finds J Mascis, Tim Parnin and John Petkovic (both of Cobra Verde) and Dave Sweetapple rocking as hard as they ever have. A little Cheap Trick, a little T-Rex, a little bit ‘60s psych-folk a la The Incredible String Band or even Love, and a LOT of fun. Of course, guest turns from Robert Pollard and Doug Gillard among others usually make for a fun record. Don’t believe me? (jeez louise, what do I have to do to earn the blurb-readers trust anyway?) Check out the Robert Pollard-featuring smash single (if we have anything to say about it) “World I’m Gonna Leave You.”
