Pluck Some Unplugged Apples in Stereo

If you were a regular visitor a couple of years ago, then you may remember the brief series I did called "Tunes Inspired By 'Toons." At that time, I covered the excellent compilation from 2000 called 'Heroes & Villains: Music Inspired By Powerpuff Girls.' One of the songs I posted was the Apples in Stereo's "Signal in the Sky (Let's Go)." Today's offering comes from the Apples in Stereo's 2001 EP 'Let's Go,' featuring "Signal in the Sky." The five-song set is a must have for fans. Among the highlights are a live take of the Beach Boys' "Heroes & Villains," as well as stripped-down versions of two well-known gems found below. If you don't know "Stream Running Over," check out the studio version on 'The Discovery of a World Inside the Moone.' Incidentally, the cartoon-like rendition of the band on the cover of the EP was drawn by 'Powerpuff Girls' creator Craig McCracken.
