The Apples in Stereo frontman Robert Schneider (upper left), Tony Allen (upper right), Tom Lehrer (bottom left) and Dan Snaith of Caribou (bottom right).

Twenty years after The Apples in Stereo first formed, the band is back with its best album yet. Travellers in Space and Time is a joyful electro-pop romp with infectious melodies and dance beats. You can hear the first single from the album on this edition of All Songs Considered. Also on the show: Afrobeat legend Tony Allen, satirist Tom Lehrer, glittery pop from Caribou, the Philadelphia-based band Dr. Dog and soaring pop from The Kissaway Trail.
