Middle States EP by The Appleseed Cast (2011)
Kind of Like: Moving Mountains, Old Canes, Explosion in the Sky
Genres: Post-rock, Emo, Ambient
Well, they will never go back to the Sunny Day Real Estate-esque band they were for "Mare Vitales" which I still think is a great album that was ahead of its time. Still weird to think that came out over ten years ago now. They went from intense, heavy emo sound to a post-rock band featuring "inventive, intricate drumming, subtle guitar arpeggios and impassioned vocals". They are still enjoyable and you hear their old sound bleed through now and then still, especially in the title track "Middle States". You got to respect a band that evolves over time though.
