Dr. Robert Schneider builds a device that enables folks like Elijah Wood, chair of the physical science and physical education department at Drain Creek Middle School, to travel through space and time. Where he lands is somewhere very funky indeed.
The Apples in Stereo are an American indie rock band associated with The Elephant Six Collective, a group of bands also including Neutral Milk Hotel and The Olivia Tremor Control. The band is largely a product of lead vocalist/guitarist Robert Schneider, who writes the majority of the band's music and lyrics. Currently, The Apples in Stereo also includes longstanding members John Hill (rhythm guitar) and Eric Allen (bass), as well as new members John Dufilho (drums) and John Ferguson (keyboards). The band's sound draws strong comparisons to the psychedelic rock of The Beatles and The Beach Boys during the 1960s.
