Founded during the early days of the genre, The Appleseed Cast is still nothing if not emo. Over 10 years old, the mopey Midwestern band from Lawrence, Kansas have found the magic formula to still grow strong even in today’s post-emo musical climate. Their most notated album to date is 2001 release Low Level Owl Vol. I & II, a deep dive into moody guitar soundscapes and emotionally filled lyrics that showcases their mastery of the math-y ethereal indie emo sound. For fans of The Promise Ring and Sunny Day Real Estate.
