Sweet Apple, 'Love and Desperation' (Tee Pee)

7
Love and Desperation
Critical Mass
Label: Tee Pee

by Joe Gross

Two dudes from bong rockers Witch, including Dinosaur Jr. ax godJ. Mascis, and two more from middle-aged glam junksters Cobra Verde, including singer John Petkovic, make for a three-guitar, super-ish group that actually gets somewhere rather than just revving its engine (see Them Crooked Vultures). Petkovic loses his mom and has death on the brain, while his mates thunder away cathartically, one stomp box in the power pop of their youth, one in the heavy indie thud they invented, sounding like they're thrilled to be alive.
