Sweet Apple are alternative / power pop royalty

I'm a big J. Mascis/Dinosaur Jr. fan but until recently I was ignorant of the wonders of Sweet Apple. The band consists of J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr., Heavy Blanket), Tim Parnin (Cobra Verde), John Petkovic (Cobra Verde, Death of Samantha, Guided By Voices) and Dave Sweetapple (Witch, Vardlokk). Cool, eh?

If you're a power pop fan, you're gonna love this. Even if you're not, you gotta give this a listen. Here's "Boys in Her Fanclub" from their recently released The Golden Age of Glitter.

Here they are with Mark Lanegan on "Wish You Could Stay (A Little Longer)"

Here's "Do You Remember?" from Love & Desperation. And you alt-rock geeks know that Hüsker Dü is Danish and Norwegian for "Do You Remember", right?
