Features J Mascis from dinosaur jr on drums! At first glance, the rock 'n' roll quartet Sweet Apple might seem like one of those 'indie-rock super group' sideshows. Yes, J. Mascis (drums/guitar/vocals) plays in dinosaur jr. Tim parnin (guitar) and John Petkovic (vocals/guitar) play in Cobra Verde. Dave Sweetapple (bass/vocals) plays in witch. Many of the Sweet Apple songs are upbeat fun and mockingly funny, with loud, brash guitars. 'Do you remember' is a driving anthem. 'I've got a feeling that won't change' is wounded pop. 'Flying up a mountain' is a nihilist sing-a-long. 'Love and desperation' was recorded in Cleveland and Massachusetts. It was mixed by John Agnello (dinosaur jr., sonic youth, the hold steady) and Don Depew (Guided by Voices, Cobra Verde).
