After five long years, indie rockers The Apples in Stereo are back with the release of their latest disc New Magnetic Wonder (Simian Records) on February 7. We’ve only had a chance to listen to a few songs so far, and they’re very catchy 60’s pop goodness. Furthermore, lead singer Robert Schneider created a whole new music scale, called the “Non-Pythagorean Scale,” which is extensively explained as a bonus on the new disc. Luckily for us, we’ll get a chance to hear it all live when the band hits Lee’s Palace on February 20, with openers Casper and The Cookies and Rock Plaza Central.
Wanna go? Of course you do! Courtesy of Against The Grain, we have three pairs of tickets to give away. Email [email protected] with your full name and the answer to this question: On which show did Robert Schneider sing the opening song for the much hyped “Guitarmageddon” episode? Contest closes Mon., Feb. 19 at noon, when the winners will be randomly drawn and notified.
Tickets may also be purchased for $15.50 in advance at Rotate This, Soundscapes and Ticketmaster (if the show isn’t already sold out).
Check out some of the songs from New Magnetic Wonder on the band’s MySpace page.
