At last – Appleseed Cast, Re-Issued

11 February 2010

After watching the triple coloured vinyl set consistently going for around £100 on Ebay, my patience has finally paid off and Deep Elm are re-issuing Appleseed Cast‘s excellent ‘Low Level Owl‘ double album. Originally released in 2001, Low Level Owl was a big hit on my stereo. Moving away from an emo rock sound, Low Level Owl saw the band embrace  soundscapes, atmospherics, minimal song structures in the form of experimental instrumentals. There are also tediously long liner notes detailing recording techniques and the writing process, which I love.

The chrome re-issue doesn’t look quite as nice as the triple coloured set originally issued though:

DM Bob & The Deficits

I’m surprised I managed to find links to the Cheapo Crypt Samplers, and even more surprised that I managed to find some albums by some of the bands on there. There was a solitary mediafire link for DM Bob & The Deficits, and I had to put that right and post it here. Track 3, ‘Two Headed Woman’ is on the Crypt sampler and was what prompted me to check it out. Enjoy German cowpunk:
