Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Robert Schneider (vocals, guitar, keyboards, background vocals); Hilarie Sidney (vocals, drums, percussion, background vocals); John Hill (guitar, percussion, background vocals); Chris McDuffie, Chris McGregor (keyboards, background vocals); Eric Allen (electric bass, percussion, background vocals).
  • Recording information: Lexington, KY (1993-2006); Pet Sounds Recording Studio, Denver, CO (1993-2006).
  • The song that will likely get the most mainstream attention on ELECTRONIC PROJECTS FOR MUSICIANS--the Apples' 2008 odds & sods collection--is "Stephen Stephen," the ode to TV host Stephen Colbert that the Apples performed on his show, The Colbert Report, in late 2006. This may distract casual listeners from recognizing how far the band that began in the mid '90s as part of the quirky Elephant 6 collective has traveled. Sure, the Apples' trademark mix of power-pop, lo-fi, indie-rock, and psych-tinged baroque pop is still very much in effect, but from the Beach Boys-esque harmonies of "Thank You Very Much" to the simple, affecting acoustic balladry of "Hold On to This Day" and the beatbox-in-a-trash-can thrift-store psychedelia of "So Far Away," the band sounds as fresh and inventive as ever. And you've got to love a group that provides its own "The Apples In Stereo Theme."
Professional Reviews
Magnet (p.100) - "It's a winner, stringing antsy, Superchunk-flavored rockers beside fuzzy, romantic declarations..."

CMJ - "[C]onsistently indelible sunbeams of songs."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[T]he fidelity is pretty uniform, and the band's essentially optimistic, sunny disposition holds true across ballads and pop songs alike."
