The Apples in Stereo — an indie-rock band associated with other bands that also emerged in the early ’90s, like the Neutral Milk Hotel and others in the Elephant 6 collective — will be the first to open the show at this year’s Slope Day, according to Mandy Hjellming ’09, chair of the Slope Day Planning Board. The Apples in Stereo will be accompanying Asher Roth and the Pussycat Dolls on the Slope on Friday, May 1.
Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Apples in Stereo plays melodic low-fi pop-rock music with psychedelic undertones, often garnering comparisons to the sounds of the 1960s. Singer and songwriter Robert Schneider remains the only original member in the group, one that has spanned many sounds and genres throughout its decade-long career.
Other band members include guitarist John Hill, bassist Eric Allen, keyboard player Bill Doss, drummer John Dufilho and vocalist and keyboard player John Ferguson.
