Apples In Stereo Side Project Bears Fruit

Apples In Stereo frontman Robert Schneider has worked with brother-in-law Craig Morris as Thee American Revolution for several years now, but 'Buddha Electrostorm' is the first time they have completed a physical full-length record. I missed writing about this one because of all the best-of lists and holiday music, but it has been out since November. Like Apples In Stereo, the band is lo-fi, but don't expect the same pop sensibilities. The closest Apples In Stereo record I can think of to compare it to is 'Velocity of Sound', but that's not quite right either. Like that 2002 album, there is lots of guitar, but it is harder and more psychedelic. It is definitely worth a listen, and it's always great to hear Schneider's voice. It's cool to see the Elephant 6 logo too.
