"Tidal Wave 7"" is the debut release by The Apples (later known as The Apples in Stereo). The EP, released in 1993, was the first official release under the Elephant 6 Recording Co. label.

The EP's six tracks were later re-released on 1996 compilation album "Science Faire", after the release of the band's debut full-length LP "Fun Trick Noisemaker".

800 copies of the album were pressed; 500 on green vinyl, 300 on black. 50 of the green vinyl copies were released with full color xerox covers.

The band's earliest material, it is also the most roughly recorded. Guitarist Chris Parfitt would later describe it as "quirky lo-fi pop... with big fuzz/noise guitar atop."
