Tune of the Week: Sweet Apple’s “Wish You Could Stay (A Little Longer)”

It’s not like Sweet Apple — J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr., Heavy Blanket), Tim Parnin (Cobra Verde, Chuck Mosley), John Petkovic (Cobra Verde, Death of Samantha, Guided By Voices) and Dave Sweetapple (Witch, Vardlokk) — need any extra help. The band are already full of experienced musicians bringing the indie cred. But for “Wish You Could Stay (A Little Longer)” they draft Mark Lanegan for additional vocals. The result is a song full of nostalgia that you won’t be able to resist. Go ahead: we dare you.
