The Apples are probably the second best band in the Elephant Six collective (Neutral Milk Hotel being the first). They make fun pop songs.

Suggested First Purchase: Fun Trick Noisemaker
Fun Trick Noisemaker (1995) -- The music sounds like the title of the album, more or less. Sometimes less fun, less tricky, and less noisy than it might imply. I like it, but I guess I'm so used to this kind of music by now that sometimes it just sounds like everything else.
Tone Soul Evolution (1997) -- Prettier and more polished (in a good way) than the first album. More great pop songs.
Her Wallpaper Reverie (1999) -- I could do without the redundant toy piano motif that interrupts the flow (which I guess was put there to make this approximately LP length?), but the songs themselves are pretty great, nice little Beatley pop tunes.
The Discovery of a World Inside the Moone (2000) -- This is the one that has "Go," their best song.
