What An Amazing History Of The Apples In Stereo, And Other Elephant 6 Stalwarts

If you really want to read a good history of the Elephant 6 Collective, with insights into the Olivia Tremor Control and the great Apples In Stereo, then head on over to the great Paste.com writeup of Ruston, Louisiana’s finest.  Seriously good reading.

The focus of the piece is on Robert Schneider (Apples), Bill Doss (OTC), and Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel), but it delves into the many projects each was involved in along the way.  And it reminds us of how sad it was, in the summer of 2012, when Bill Doss passed away, just as the reformed Olivia Tremor Control was getting ready to put out a new album.

Which reminds us, where is that Olivia Tremor Control album promised before Bill Doss died?  There is a reference here to it being finished.  When will we see it?
