THE APPLES IN STEREO

Travelers in Space and Time

2011-02-06

Do you remember the 1980 (Olivia Newton John/ ELO) soundtrack to the film “Xanadu”? I don’t blame you, if you don’t; it was forgettable. Well, in “Travelers in Space and Time”, The Apples abandon the indie pop sound of 2007’s “New Magnetic Wonder” and replace it with a retro “Xanadu” sound. In spite of the futuristic spaceman references (“Strange Solar System”) and computer-centric lyrics (“C.P.U.”), “Travelers in Space and Time” has a retro sound that I’m not keen on revisiting.
