Release Notes:

The title is a joke, except not-- the Apples in Stereo have never had a
real hit, but singer/songwriter/producer Robert Schneider's
long-running crew has always been attracted to the sound of hits, the
aesthetics of hits, and the melodies of (specific) hits. They've just
never had much time for the economic framework of hits, and although
Sire co-released Tone Soul Evolution back in 1997 when it briefly
looked like anything could blow up, the Apples have generally presented
themselves as a DIY operation. Their home-brewed approximation of
late-60s psychedelic pop is removed both temporally and culturally from
the audience they often pretend they're playing to. (They've also
barely released any singles: they're an album band and a live act.)

It turns out, though, that isolating songs from their records and
scrambling their chronology does them neither good nor harm. This
best-of spanning the six albums they've made in the last decade and a
half is their most straightforward record: no trippy gestures or
between-song links, thanks, just Schneider's better hooks lined up
end-to-end, plus a couple of showcases for now-departed drummer Hilarie
Sidney. (The one non-album track is probably the Apples' most widely
exposed song, the adorable Powerpuff Girls soundtrack contribution
"Signal in the Sky [Let's Go]".)

Schneider was arguably the engine of the Elephant 6 collective, the guy
whose work ethic and low-budget ingenuity turned his friends' dreams
and jams into actual records like In the Aeroplane Over the Sea and
Dusk at Cubist Castle. His greatest weakness as a frontman is that he
has nothing in particular to say lyrically ("It's gonna be all right/
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh, yeah"); the strength that covers up
for it is that he's figured out all the tricks of 40-year-old psych-pop
production, chief among which is keeping something new and ear-grabbing
jumping out of the speakers every few seconds. (Schneider's never heard
a backing vocal he didn't like, especially if it sounds like something
John Lennon could have sung.) He also likes to work in stray bits of
melody from 40-year-old records: the very first line of the first song
here, "Energy", echoes Jackie DeShannon's "Put a Little Love in Your
Heart", and "Seems So" suggests an intimate familiarity with the
Beatles' "You Won't See Me".

The Apples' sound has been remarkably consistent over time; aside from
the ELO tendencies and digitalisms that turn up on the four songs here
from 2007's New Magnetic Wonder, this set could just as well dоcument a
single year in the life of a band, and it wouldn't be clear what year.
(The unfancy crunch of 2002's "Please" is the only real nod to their
.38 Special-ish live sound.) What's missing from #1 Hits Explosion is a
sense of why a hitless, consistent album act needs a retrospective. If
it were the only Apples record, it'd be a shock and a delight. Given
that there's been only one new album by the band in the past seven
years, though, it feels like a time-marking gesture-- a mixtape whose
only argument about the Apples is how reliable they are.

The Apples In Stereo: #1 Hits Explosion (2009)

mp3 VBR~224kpbs | 89MB | 52:37 min.
If the Apples in Stereo had only made Fun Trick Noisemaker and then quit, their legacy as a legendary pop group would have been secure. In 1995, nobody else was making records as giddy or as full of wonder as the Apples, and definitely no one was making records as exquisitely arranged and magical on a shoestring budget. The release of Fun Trick was a defining moment in indie rock that came pretty close to being a lo-fi pop masterpiece, and still sounds just as amazing. That the Apples couldn't top it is no cause for shame on their part; that they kept trying and ended up creating a catalog as rich in great songs and records is cause for celebration. The cheekily titled #1 Hits Explosion is just the kind of career-summing package the band deserves and it makes clear just how wonderful a band it is. Gathering songs in roughly equal numbers from all six of their studio albums (and adding the infectious rocker "Signal in the Sky [Let's Go]" that they recorded for The Powerpuff Girls' Heroes & Villains soundtrack), the collection focuses mostly on the ultra-hooky, power pop-influenced side of the band. Starting with the booming rocker "Energy" from their most recent record, New Magnetic Wonder, the songs fly past like gooey sticks of bubblegum, glowing and shimmering like the finest pop music of the '60s and '70s. "The Rainbow," "Go," "Shine a Light," and "Ruby" (just to pick four) could have easily been hits in 1967 given the right circumstances, "Shine a Light" sounds like a low-budget ELO, and there's absolutely no reason "Signal in the Sky" wasn't topping the charts in 2000. Only "Strawberry Fire" and "20 Cases Suggestive Of..." hint at the trippy, hazily psychedelic side of the group, but even then the hooks in the choruses are strong enough that you could hang a cement overcoat from them with no problem. The possible flaw with the collection is that -- as is the case with any such album -- one of your favorite tracks might be missing ("Glowworm" from Fun Trick, for example). Otherwise, it works as both an excellent overview of the band's career and as a dоcument of some of the finest pop music of the alt-rock era (and maybe of ever). -- http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&s...10:gpftxztaldke

The Apples In Stereo - Travellers in Space and Time [2010] [MP3 / V0 (VBR) / CD / LOG]
картинка, оставленная пользователем

Yep Roc / YEP 2212

Studio-obsessed indie rockers The Apples In Stereo seventh 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 second release for Elijah Wood's Simian Records. 'Travellers' contains sixteen piano-driven tracks, bubbling over with vocoder harmonies and sci-fi sound effects, like 70's AM radio filtered through a UFO; including the robotic first single "Dance Floor", the four-on-the-floor dream-scape "Hey Elevator", the Hall and Oates-tinged "Told You Once", and the futuristic epic "Dream About The Future," among many instant hits. The musical theme heard in these songs is strung throughout Travellers: intense pop hooks and electronic sounds, mixed with a pumping, get-up-and-moonwalk beat.

Anyone familiar with The Apples In Stereo's career will know Schneider's ever-evolving production process is as intricate as the recordings he generates., the band spent well over a year in the studio recasting their signature pop sounds in chrome-plated futurism, all while adding a dance-driven vibe channeling ELO, Barry Gibb, and Off The Wall-era Michael Jackson. The Apples' most ambitious studio production yet.

Apples In Stereo - Dance Floor

В новом клипе ветеранов инди попа некогда хоббит, а ныне босс собственного музыкального лейбла Элайджа Вуд играет профессора физики. Случайно нажав не на ту кнопку, он совершает путешествие во времени и пространстве и попадает в оранжевую комнату, где как раз в разгаре выступление Apples In Stereo.

Появление Вуда в клипе не случайно: 20 апреля на его лейбле Yep Roc/Simian выходит новый альбом Apples In Stereo - "Travellers In Space And Time".
