Apples in Stereo
The Apples in Stereo is an American indie rock band associated with The Elephant Six Collective. Currently, The Apples in Stereo comprises longstanding members John Hill (rhythm guitar) and Eric Allen (bass), as well as new members Bill Doss (keyboards), John Dufilho (drums) and John Ferguson (keyboards).
The group is largely a product of lead vocalist/guitarist Robert Schneider, who writes the majority of the band?s music and lyrics.
The Apples in Stereo are characterized distinctly for their bright, catchy lyrics and 60s pop/rock sound. The sound the band produces is often compared to that of the Beatles, The Velvet Underground, The Beach Boys, and Electric Light Orchestra.
The band?s history dates back to late 1991 when Robert Schneider met Jim McIntyre on a commuter bus in Denver, Colorado. Schneider would often initiate daily conversations with McIntyre. Realizing that they both shared many musical interests, McIntyre introduced Schneider to Hilarie Sidney.
McIntyre already had a band called Von Hemmling in which he played bass and Sidney played drums. Schneider later met Chris Parfitt and became friends.
However, they toyed with the idea of having a rock band similar to The Velvet Underground or Black Sabbath, with production qualities similar to that of The Beach Boys.
Schneider discussed the idea of a record label with his childhood friends Will Cullen Hart, Bill Doss and Jeff Mangum. It was also at this time that the name ?The Apples? came about.
The earliest incarnation of the group began to form in 1992, first between Schneider and Parfitt, both of whom played guitar. The two recruited McIntyre and Sidney during the autumn of that year. Their first few live shows took place the following January.
From February to April 1993, they released their debut 7? EP, Tidal Wave, in June as the first official Elephant 6 release. The Apples continued touring through 1996, playing in Japan for the first time.
The recording sessions were held earlier at Pet Sounds for the band?s second album, Tone Soul Evolution. Dissatisfied with the quality of the recordings, they re-recorded majority of the album?s songs at Studio .45 in Hartford, Connecticut.
In 1998, the group was joined by Chris McDuffie who played various instruments including organs, synthesizers and assorted percussion. Several more albums were released through the years, including the psychedelic concept EP.
The 2002 album Velocity of Sound rejected most of the psych-pop production sensibilities that came to be associated with the band, instead featured stripped-down production and sparse, rock instrumentation.
The band members also continued to pursue careers in side bands and solo projects. Schneider produced several albums for Elephant 6 artists. The band would go on a brief hiatus during 2004.
Schneider released the debut album from a new band called Ulysses whereas Sidney released the debut album from her new band The High Water Marks.
In 2007, The Apples in Stereo released their sixth studio LP, entitled New Magnetic Wonder. Finishing a ten year deal with spinART Records, New Magnetic Wonder was the premiere release on Simian Records.
In 2008, spinART Records went out of business and rights for all major releases by The Apples in Stereo were acquired by One Little Indian Records. In a recent interview, Schneider noted that the band?s EPs have yet to have been re-released.
