APPLESEED CAST/ASOBI SEKSU + STORY OF THE SEA @ The Triple Rock
Once again another extremely late show at the triple rock after a long day at work. Lucky for all of us this night was thrilling. Starting off with a garage rock local band who sounded a bit like ASH. With only 3 members Story of the Sea mixes a great heavy rock sound together to form some pretty sweet tunes.
Next up was the much anticipated Asobi Seksu from New York, who were revisiting Minneapolis after playing here a couple months ago at the 400 bar. This band is lead by some great female vocals that remind a lot like Camera Obscura. A very high pitch, great melodies, all mixed in with a rock n roll band. They had lights and all the camera's on them for this show as they prepare for a potential DVD release. Love the keyboard, vocals, and flashing lights!!
Last on the bill was the classic Appleseed Cast. Very similar look to Built to spill, with a little more editors sound. Great blend of instrumental tunes to ranging vocals in their tracks. This is a very underrated band. I would even throw out my morning jacket, because of all the talent this band has. Keep an eye on these guys!!!!
