Young Love

by The Appleseed Collective

Mix the Hot Club of Paris with the sweaty soul of Dixieland, a couple blades of bluegrass, and a pinch of ragtime swinging swagger and you've just conjured the sound of Ann Arbor's premier americana/roots group on their second full-length release.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Appleseed Collective is not a bluegrass band. It’s not The Hot Club of Paris. It’s not a ragtime cover band. The Appleseed Collective represents Americana music rooted in traditions from all over the world and from every decade, creating a live experience that welcomes every soul and is impossible to replicate.

Their second release, "Young Love," features songs written by Andrew Brown, Katie Lee, and Brandon Smith, as is true to the band’s collective nature. The album was tracked almost entirely live, a testament to how the group has developed as a unit. Like a vintage merlot, the songwriting on "Young Love" has developed stronger, deeper flavors--the feeling of being truly alone is coupled with the understanding that there is no perfect love; the idea that opposites attract is enhanced by the feeling of being so overwhelmingly happy you become sad. Listeners learn that there is no genre boundary that cannot be crossed, that acoustic instruments are not restrictive, but instead capable of speaking every language. Learning to work together is almost as important as learning the feeling of being torn apart as the band pushes and pulls, stretches and compacts into every space created by the diverse song structures. From Andrews Sisters’-esque harmonies to rapid bluegrass changes to bossa nova-turned-psychedelia, Young Love is the exploration of old souls stuck in young bodies, each yearning to share some kind of felt experience.
