Fans of J. Mascis’ drumming prowess will find much to like in Sweet Apple, a quartet the Dinosaur Jr. frontman joined a few years back. While Mascis seems content to just man the skins in the group, songwriting is capably handled by members of Cobra Verde, Death Of Samantha, and Witch. The group’s latest record, The Golden Age Of Glitter, came out this spring and features guest contributions from both Mark Lanegan and Guided By Voices’ Robert Pollard, who pops up on both “Under The Liquor Sign” and “Reunion.” Below, The A.V. Club is premiering the Halloween-appropriate video for “Reunion” which was shot at spookily historic sites in both Salem and Amherst, Massachusetts, including the House Of Seven Gables and the cemetery where some people associated with the Salem Witch Trials are buried. Group member John Petkovic, who also shot and directed the clip, says the video’s shoot was a bit of a reunion for the long-distance group itself, considering its members are spread out all over the eastern United States.
