Kansas’ post-rockers Appleseed Cast have a new record out in April.  Their 8th LP will be called Illumination Ritual (o4/23 Graveface).

I love their big, sweeping, proggy style of emo.  Peregrine came out before  the time Coral and I started dating.  She used to listen to these guys and I adopted the band.  I have fond memories of that time and we have that album hanging on the wall of our home.

I woke up today to news of a first taste.  Let’s have a listen to “Great Lake Derelict.”

Huge.  Love this new tune and I’m looking forward to the record in April.

Go with yourself.

I am working on a new playlist, this one is taking some time to find all the *right* songs.  I can’t share it yet, but I am listening to it now and the opening cut from Appleseed Cast, “Forever Longing the Golden Sunsets” is truly an amazing track.  This playlist is still in its infancy and will require lots of love and listens, but I like that track to open things up.  Can’t wait to share it with you.
