Massive in approach and epic in scope, Low Level Owl is a vast soundscape that lives and breathes on its own. Nearly two hours in total length, it includes twenty-six beautifully orchestrated songs of lush melody, expertly paced dynamics and blossoming atmospherics. Pioneering post-rockers The Appleseed Cast give way to a more courageous exploration of sound and texture on Low Level Owl, experimenting with loops, echoes, instrumentation, inverting tape and changing speeds. They discover the sonic possibilities…the masterpiece in every measure. Each song nearly explodes at the seams, overflowing with symphonics, crescendos, swells of feedback and electronics. Listen to slowly building waves of guitars and drums that ultimately crest, bursting into the shimmering tears of honest men. Music like this is neither calculated nor deliberate. It just happens. It just exists. This is the music to dream to…
“Low Level Owl is a supernova…a sprawling three-disc monster of meticulous conceptions crafted through endless hours of studio time. Overhauling their sound and incorporating a wide melange of styles, the technical execution throughout the album is flawless. Just the arrangement of the music alone shows the amount of thought that goes into an album of this size. There are hints of Stone Roses, My Bloody Valentine and Built to Spill – all embedded a lush wave of production reminiscent of the Flaming Lips, Spiritualized or Mogwai. With Low Level Owl, The Appleseed Cast establish their own unique vision for the future of rock, offering hope and brighter possibilities for the genre…or rather, creating their own. It’s time to herald The Appleseed Cast for what they are: groundbreaking.” – Pitchfork
