The Appleseed Cast
Formally-local-now-Kansas-based band The Appleseed Cast seemed to always choose the bumpy road down their musical career path. Consider their seemly-endless rotation of group members, rumors of an expelled drummer (which were true) followed by a brief hiatus, a drop by financially belly-up record label Tiger Style, and just when they were getting back on their feet: a tour van and trailer-wrecking car crash. An easy road, it ain't been. But like the tiny seed that grows into a fruit-giving tree, this group proved undyingly resilient. The band's latest album, 2013's Illumination Ritual, was a welcome reminder that Appleseed Cast is still relevant—and still quite adapt at blending eclectic melodies and hooks, skipping from dream pop to ambient noise to quick-tempered rock. Don't miss their show tonight at the Glass House and remember why you loved them in the first place.
