The British band helmed by singer Stephanie Min and guitarist Jerome Watson invites comparisons to '90s staples like The Breeders and Luscious Jackson, but without the feel of a retread.

Feel Something is The History of Apple Pie's second album, and though the band has only existed for three years, there's a clear cohesion to their point of view. Read More
