Apples in Stereo have been putting out annoyingly jammy
pop-diddies (hah, even that sentence annoyed me) since
1995. This latest album of their's, "The Velocity
of Sound", is a great continuation of their career.
It's got most everything a post-modern emokid hipster
could want these days. The album has melodic punk melodies,
a high-pitched male lead singer, angsty lyrics. It's
fascinating, really. There's a lot of Indie Pop out
there, this is quite stereotypical stuff. I wouldn't
be suprised if the lead singer wore a striped cardigan
and had glasses or something.
hehehe, beware the idiot reviewer...
anyway, the CD has a basic format to most of it's songs.
Fuzzed guitars with punk / 60's rock influence, a few
moog synth lines, melodic, well versed, intelligent
singers with self-depreciating referencial lyrics. (i
enjoy big words. :P nyah)
Bands that they remind me of? Pavement meets the Mooney
Suzuki. The album cover's orange, for those in North
America, so check it out in the A(p) section of your
record store. I think if you look, they probably carry
it at Sam Goody or some craphole corporate store like
that. Support your local Indie music stores, buy this
album there (or at amazon, and get us moneys!)
