Many modern "old-timey" bands rely more on gimmicks than actual musical talent, using funny hats and suspenders to disguise the fact that their music isn't that great. But between their eyebrow-raising instrumentation and tricky song structures, this Ann Arbor, Mich.-based five-piece band is the whole package. Ingeniously blending folksy Americana with sultry jazz, The Appleseed Collective made their live-recorded latest album, Young Love, a truly ear-catching listen, as vocal harmonies glow warmly and lilting fiddle and intricate guitar intertwine. And they have the clever songwriting ability to match, as heard on the track "Novelty Item," on which vocalist Andrew Brown sings, "You won't find me at the drugstore because I ain't synthesized/ Won't find me at the mall I don't come in a different size." (Kolbie Stonehocker)
