Studio-obsessed indie rockers The Apples in stereo are celebrating the start of a new decade with the release of their seventh studio album, Travellers in Space and Time, their most hi-fi and hook-laden production to date. Described by frontman Robert Schneider as "retro-futuristic super-pop," the album is the official follow-up to 2007’s New Magnetic Wonder, and the band's second release for Elijah Wood’s Simian Records. The album will be released on April 20 via Yep Roc/Simian/Elephant 6.
In honor of Record Store Day we've got a vinyl copy of Future Vintage: Covers of The Apples in stereo to award one winner as we continue the march toward Record Store Day and close out our Ten Weeks of Record Store Day Giveaways.
