Landing the same year as Kubrick’s 2001, New York techno-pop bad trip Silver Apples were a similarly disorienting mix of the darkly robotic and the decidedly psychotropic on their 1968 debut. Tinkering on a massive oscillator of their own design, the duo were among the very first to explore the transformative tension between pummeling rock, wub-wubbing electronic noise, and sampledelic radio rumbles.

Geologist: I feel like a lot of the reference points for this record are almost going back to formative ones, like White Noise or Silver Apples.
