Let's Go is a five-song collection of odds and ends that should please and appease Apples in Stereo fans between the band's full-length releases. Opening with the buoyant bebop pop of "Signal in the Sky" -- written especially for the television cartoon The Powerpuff Girls and included on that show's soundtrack -- the band has again created a shimmering soundtrack for afternoon summer BBQs and days at the shore. It's fitting, then, that the EP also includes a live cover of the Beach Boys' "Heroes & Villains," a longtime concert favorite that sounds ready-made for the ever-exuberant Apples in Stereo. Rounding out the release is the "Signal in the Sky" demo, an excellent solo-acoustic version of "Stream Running Over" (from the band's Discovery of a World Inside the Moone) and the new "If You Want to Wear a Hat." So while Let's Go isn't pushing any boundaries for the band, it offers up five more slices of pure pop that fans have come to expect of the Apples in Stereo.
