Apples In Stereo, The
Travellers In Space And Time, 180G Vinyl LP Record
"I wanted to make a futuristic pop record, to reach out to the kids of the future."It is what I imagine their more highly-evolved pop might sound like: shiny soul music with robots and humans singing together. We are sending a pop music message through time" So says The Apples in stereo / Elephant 6 collective mastermind Robert Schneider. The Apples’ new album and seventh studio effort, Travellers in Space and Time is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed hit album New Magnetic Wonder and their second release in association with Elijah Wood’s Simian Records. Travellers finds the studio-obsessed indie rockers continuing the hook-heavy pop mastery they achieved on New Magnetic Wonder, an album that spawned performances on Conan O’Brien and Stephen Colbert, along with numerous commercial placements (Pepsi, Samsung, New Balance) and even a performance of hit single "Energy" by the contestants of American Idol. Well over a year in the making, the new material recasts the Apples’ signature pop sounds in chrome-plated futurism, all while adding a dance-driven vibe channeling ELO, Barry Gibb, Wild Honey-era Beach Boys and Off The Wall-era Michael Jackson.
