Sweet Apple, the band of rockers featuring J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr., Heavy Blanket), Tim Parnin (Cobra Verde, Chuck Mosley), John Petkovic (Cobra Verde, Death Of Samantha, Guided By Voices) and Dave Sweetapple (Witch, Eerie) once again collaborated across several state lines to create their new album, Sing The Night In Sorrow. The record explores themes such as longing and escape, darkness consumed by endless daylight, love amid lovelessness, faulty memory, alienation and distance, all set to a musical palette that mixes atmosphere with impact.
Three years in the making, the follow-up to 2014's critically acclaimed The Golden Age of Glitter rolls out insurgent guitars, glitter-stomp, and orchestrated pop, at once timeless and contemporary. Given Sweet Apple's geographical reach – its four members live in Massachusetts, Vermont and Ohio – it's no surprise that the band's inner circle has expanded outwards with this LP. Guest musicians on Sing The Night In Sorrow include Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens Of The Stone Age), Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices), Rachel Haden (Haden Triplets) and Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices, Nada Surf).
