Apples in Stereo 

9 p.m. Saturday, July 19. Blueberry Hill's Duck Room, 6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City

Neutral Milk Hotel has passed into legend, and Olivia Tremor Control reunites only rarely for festival gigs, and so that leaves Apples in Stereo as the last surviving remnant of the original Elephant 6 triumvirate. Founded and largely masterminded by Robert Schneider, the Apples have spent the past dozen years prolifically churning out perfect pop songs and semi-psychedelic interstitial segments. Schneider even went so far as to invent a new musical scale for 2006's New Magnetic Wonder. The band's latest album, Electronic Projects for Musicians, is a collection of B-sides and outtakes from the band's dozen-year career. (And yes, it includes "Stephen Stephen," which Schneider performed live on The Colbert Report before the Colbert/Decemberists' guitar faceoff.)
