Lexington’s Robert Schneider, frontman for Apples in Stereo, is serving as guest editor for Magnet Magazine all week.
In today’s interview with Schneider, they write:
“He’s easily the most dynamic, fascinating interview subject I’ve ever encountered—and I’ve done hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of ‘em. He’s also one of a handful of great songwriters to emerge over the past 20 years, a psych/pop genius whose knack for addictive melodies and memorable lyrics is perfectly obvious on Travellers In Space And Time (Simian/Yep Roc). To no one’s surprise, he’s also been discovered by nationally focused advertising agencies for high-profile TV ad campaigns.”
The Apples in Stereo also just had the song of the day, “Told You Once” on NPR. Christian Hoard characterizes the song as “a paisley-colored romp about wanting to steal someone’s girlfriend, with singer Robert Schneider mustering as much animosity as possible. Which is to say, none at all.”
Robert Schneider will perform at 1 pm at the Morris Book Shop’s 2nd anniversary celebration, Saturday, July 31, at 408 Southland Drive.
