a collective producing instrumental psychedelic, atmospheric and cinematic soundtracks.
Formed in Athens, Georgia, this collection of talented/ unemployable friends and acquaintances began playing instrumental music together under the name Applesauce Tears. A move to Atlanta, Ga. brought a certain amount of clarity as the group took shape and began producing their brand of instrumental cinematic soundtracks and psychedelic experimental music. Though considering themselves Luddites on a digitally-maintained payroll, these sound collagist drop-outs found themselves yearning for an internet presence - thus their website and it's many links. Some have dared (often behind closed doors) to mention Applesauce Tears in the same breath (or gasp) as Ennio Morricone, Brian Eno, Boards Of Canada, Roxy Music, Todd Rundgren, Burt Bacharach, Isacc Hayes and Pink Floyd.

Tug ATBC70 LP available for digital download
Applesauce Tears returns with a new LP entitled Pastoral, leaving the urban landscape of their previous CMJ/NACC charting LP Commuters, this time taking a twisted stroll through the county side.
While stylistically similar to their previous work, the tone of Pastoral is at times lighter, and more hopeful, with cranky keyboards blossoming throughout. Still, the band continues their exploration into unsure melodies and unresolved atmospheres. It's another instrumental trip
Applesauce Tears’ last three albums, Damages, Alpha Drift and Commuters, spent substantial time on the CMJ/ NACC charts as well as charting at numerous college and indie stations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Demand (yes, demand!) your local radio station play the new album Pastoral by Applesauce Tears!
