iTunes Review

The Apples in Stereo leader Robert Schneider has always had a way with a pop hook but with 2010’s Travellers in Space and Time, he’s apparently found an entire closet filled with electronics dating back to the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. Travellers plays like a power-pop band gone disco. There are cheesy synths, primitive vocoders, cotton-candy melodies, Smurf-like backing harmonies. All that’s missing is the disco ball to send the multicolored hues onto the dancefloor. “Dream About the Future” trips up like something from a roller-disco. “Hey Elevator” sounds like it took music lessons from the Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me.” “Strange Solar System” sounds like the clustered harmonies of Queen cut up for the digital age. “Dance Floor” is made for exactly that as it pumps up the techno rhythms. “No One In the World” sounds like Andrew Gold (“Lonely Boy”) crossed with New Order. Schneider’s clearly having fun here, turning pop music into mechanical consumption for the masses.

Customer Reviews

any other review is irrelevant

I could go around waxing poetically about how the Apple's new album is a postmodern dancemorphic synthpop masterpiece and somehow changed my life by helping me realize the absurdity of my own existence, but it would serve no other purpose than to make me sound deeper than I really am.

I am a tin can filled with rain water, and this album is great.

Settling In Their Sea Change

The Apples settle into a great blend of futuristic pop that plays nicely into their psych-pop tendencies. Their new album sounds like ELO meets Todd Rundgren's "A Wizard, A True Star" album with the former's vocoder-laden pop structures and hooks coupled with plenty of bouncy synth and guitar experimentation a-la "A Wizard, A True Star." It actually seems like a logical style to fit themselves into as they have a penchent for such pop whimsy. I really liked it more than the rest of their recent albums. I gave it four stars but I'd probably have to say more like four and a half.

Far out!

The album title "Travellers in Space and Time" a perfect title for this record. Sci-fi/techno inspired beats and bloops and the typical quirky, fun lyrics - exactly what you would expect from the Apples in Stereo. Good indie pop fun!

Sunny pop band the Apples in Stereo were one of the leading lights of the Elephant 6 Recording Company collective, a coterie of likeminded lo-fi indie groups -- including the Olivia Tremor Control, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Secret Square -- who shared musicians, ideas, and sensibilities. They were led by singer/songwriter Robert Schneider, a native of the tiny town of Ruston, LA, also home to Jeff Mangum (later of Neutral Milk Hotel) as well as William Cullen Hart and Bill Doss (who formed the Olivia...
