The Apples In Stereo - The Bird You Can't See

The Apples In Stereo will release their first ever best of collection on September 1st on Yep Roc Records. It is called #1 Hits Explosion (pre-order HERE) and all of the tracks have been digitally remastered. One of the original bands on the legendary psych pop Elephant Six Recording Co., these guys are masters of retro-futuristic indie pop, and have soundtracked a lot of the last 13 or 14 years of my life. My first exposure was 1997's Tone Soul Evolution and I've been hooked ever since. I dig the catchy hooks and fuzzy guitars, and the harmonies are bitchin'. Sure, some of it verges on twee, but we all need a little twee once in a while, right? The band is gearing up to record a new album which should be out sometime in 2010. Today's offering, The Bird You Can't See, originally appeared on 2000's The Discovery Of A World Inside The Moone.
