Hovering in the shadows comes Apse's Spirit, a mesmerizing album where the shrouded world of Gothic gloom meets the outer stratosphere of space rock. Although laced with vocals and haunted by moody melodies, the 11 tracks within are less songs than instrumentals interconnected by their melodies, rhythms, and thick atmospheres. For years I’ve been singing the praises of Liars, another uncompromising band that literally dances to the beat of its own drummer.
This five-piece from Boston and New York is very definitely a band to watch, all the more so as it has completely avoided many of the cliches of indie rock, especially (and thankfully) the screeching hysteria. There is melody, there is musicianship and there is a total fearlessness about this album that excites.

Spirit, the debut album from the . based band Apse features such an Intro. A quietly brooding, short piece of music that perfectly blends into 'From the North', the sinister and unfurling second track which sets the tone for this ambitious album. With the post-rock genre as a whole becoming a bit tired and repetitive, Apse bring something a touch more ambitious to the party. Frequently featuring vocals, the lyrics feel as though they've been dredged up from the very bottom of the ocean
