6/3: Appleseed Cast at the Grog Shop

Posted By on Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 4:00 PM

When Appleseed Cast released the two-volume Low Level Owl in 2001, the project marked a significant step forward for the group. By combining interweaving guitar lines and grandiosity with post-rock dynamics and studio experimentation, the Kansas-based band crafted a gorgeous, career-defining work. Appleseed Cast have since struggled to recapture that depth and beauty. On their latest album, Sagarmatha, they cover everything from the crushing, crescendo-loving rock of Explosions in the Sky to Mogwai’s soothing and rhythmically complex instrumentals. Sagarmatha shows a band at the top of its game again. It may have taken eight years, but it was well worth the wait. Beaten Awake and Blast Shields Up! open at 8 p.m. at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.5588, Tickets: $8 advance, $10 at the door. — Matt Whelihan
