Doug Fir

If you listened to the Appleseed Cast 10 years ago, you likely were staring at the ceiling of your dorm room, wondering whether your heart would ever feel whole again. Possibly you were wearing black eyeliner at the time. It didn't occur to you that both you and they would outgrow emo or that the Kansas-based quartet would become post-rock innovators. Their 2009 LP, Sagarmatha, and their 2001 EP, Middle States, features mushy, unintelligible vocals and gorgeous guitars, but the freewheeling bass and drum arrangements are the real secret weapon. Best yet, they're on tour with Hospital Ships, a highly enjoyable band who are probably tired of being compared to the Flaming Lips. REBECCA WILSON
