NEW ALBUM OUT FEBRUARY 6th, 2007
“New Magnetic Wonder marks The Apples in Stereo’s first album in five years and features an array of special guests including many members of the Elephant 6 collective. Sticking with their indie-rock pedigree the Apples sought the production skills of acclaimed engineer Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Sebadoh, Phish, Sean Lennon) who mixed their last record ‘Velocity of Sound.’ The album also features a new musical scale invented by lead singer Robert Schneider called The ‘Non-Pythagorean Scale.’ This scale will be featured on an enhanced portion of this multimedia CD release, which includes digital files for MIDI usage and an in-depth description by Schneider of how to experiment with the new scale both in document and video form.”
People keep telling me Jeff Mangum is one of those people that guests on the album – the album being put out with the help of Elijah Wood.
“John Dufilho, lead singer and principal songwriter of The Deathray Davies, has joined Denver-based The Apples in Stereo. Dufilho replaces original Apples drummer Hilarie Sidney, who left this past August.” [Texas Gigs]
