As many questions as the Rare Occasions‘ EP title creates (What is an applefork and what is its purpose?), one thing is clear: these guys know how to make music.
It’s almost summertime and I want to groove to something that makes me feel like I’m driving down the California coast.
Applefork is upbeat and fun due in part to their use of clever melodies and catchy rhythms that feel effervescent. “Battin Lashes” and “Getaway” are standouts and should find their way onto your summer playlists. “Miss Mary Mack” is a clever play on the children’s rhyme (she’s a crazy bitch in this version).
This album does what it’s supposed to: makes you smile, keeps your foot tapping, and reminds you there are sunny days yet to come.
