The Apples in stereo - "Dance Floor" from the album Travellers in Space and Time

Biography

Studio-obsessed indie rockers The Apples in stereo are celebrating the start of a new decade with the release of their seventh studio album, Travellers in Space and Time, their most hi-fi and hook-laden production to date. Described by frontman Robert Schneider as "retro-futuristic super-pop," the album is the official follow-up to 2007's New Magnetic Wonder, and the band's ...

Editorial Reviews

Fresh off the release of the critically acclaimed New Magnetic Wonder and one of the most productive years of their career (including recording a remix for Yoko Ono and tours of Europe and
Taiwan), The Apples in stereo are releasing the long-awaited compilation Electronic Projects for Musicians through Simian Records/Yep Roc Records/ Elephant 6. Named after an electronics
how-to manual by Craig Anderton, the album can be seen as the band s follow-up to their 1996 compilation Science Faire. The album spans over 10 years and includes music from b-sides and rarities recorded between 1995 and 2007. It also features three previously unreleased tracks: ''Stephen Stephen,'' written for and originally performed on Stephen Colbert s The Colbert Report; ''The Apples in stereo Theme Song,'' recorded for the band s website; and the highly anticipated ''Dreams,'' a previously unfinished track from 1997 s Tone Soul Evolution.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockin' at the rock'n'roll show March 31, 2008
Format:Audio CD
It's been more than a decade since the Apples in Stereo produced the spotty-yet-enjoyable "Science Faire," so it's about time they produced another collection of B-sides and rarities.

And while these songs -- mostly bonus tracks from past releases -- aren't quite the Apples at their best, "Electronic Project For Musicians" is still plenty of fun, and shows how the band has grown since their last B-sides/rarities collections. Lots of loopy, colourful little pop tunes with a certain retro sixties pop flavour.

It kicks off with the rapid guitar of "Shine (In Your Mind)," a sunny little pop tune with equally upbeat lyrics ("Here I come/a marigold/for you to hold!"), and oozing with the Beach Boys vibe. They don't get any darker with "Thank You Very Much," a lazy summery little ballad riddled with piano, acoustic guitar and Japanese phrases. Not terribly complex, but nice.

Then they venture into grittier turf: the rough-edged riffs and bouncy melody of "Onto Something," an angular little pop tune with a ringing guitar, a drawling rocker shimmering with organ, and a wide-eyed little acoustic ballad that reflects on how "this moment's so sweet/I will live until my life's complete/the world may be a range/I won't forget this day... I can't believe you're moving... today."

But they haven't abandoned the psychpop -- sunny little oasis songs, rippling little blobs of ringing cycling synth, distorted powerpop, and the dreamlike violin-led psychedelica of "Dreams." And they really bust out the childlike fun with the delightful "Stephen Stephen," and the gloriously effervescent "The Apples Theme Song" ("We are the Apples in Stereo/you hear our records on the radio/we are the Apples in Stereo/you hear us rockin' at the rock'n'roll show...

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Solid June 16, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
It's a solid album. Really, I was thinking of giving it three stars, but this is such a must-have for any Apples in Stereo collection that I can't give it anything less than four. You've probably heard some of this songs before (if you've been digging around the Internet for tracks by the Apples in Stereo, that is), but nothing beats having the high quality mp3s (I don't even bother with CDs any more). Chances are, if you're reading this review, you need this album. Tracks 2, 4, 8, 9, 11, and 12 are especially good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised April 9, 2010
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I actually got this for "On Your Own", but after listening to the rest of the album, realized it is fairly well-crafted. This prompted me to check out their other titles online, only to realize they are equally as good. I have become a fan. Nice hooks and melody lines with enough diversity to make it interesting. More groups should be following this format.
