''The Olivia Tremor Control'' is an indie rock band associated with the Music/{{Elephant 6}} Collective, a group of bands which also includes ''Music/OfMontreal'', ''Music/NeutralMilkHotel'', and ''Music/TheApplesInStereo''. The band was founded in 1994 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Bill Doss and Will Cullen Hart and disbanded in early 2000, though they have reunited sporadically since 2009. Doss died in 2012, putting an end to that year's reunion.

!!The Olivia Trope Control:
* ApocalypseHow: "California Demise"
* BaroquePop: Much like the rest of the [=E6=] Collective, they take heavy influence from Music/TheBeachBoys.
* ConceptAlbum: [[UpToEleven Or concept discography.]] The band's primary inspiration is the nonsensical, entrancing universe of dreams, to the point where they asked some of their listeners to send in tapes of their own dreams.
* EpicRocking: Green Typewriters, at 23:08.
* MindScrew: Comes with the territory when most of your songs are about dreams.
* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: The band would record sound collages just as often as straight psych rock songs.
* PsychedelicRock
* RealDreamsAreWeirder: The basic inspiration for most of their songs. One of their songs is even called "Define a Transparent Dream."
* RedOniBlueOni: The basic dynamic of the group's sound was based on Bill Doss' (Blue) pop sensibilities combining with Will Cullen Hart's (Red) madcap experimenting.
* SerialEscalation: Often. For example, most of the shorter tracks on ''Black Foliage Animation Music'' are variations on the basic tracks for the song "Black Foliage"; in turn, the super-brief "Combinations" tracks are remixes of those remixes; and the B-side to the album single "Hideaway", also entitled "Combinations", is seemingly a three-minute remix of those remixed remixes... [[MindScrew Savvy?]]
* ShutIn: Possibly the narrator of "Sylvan Screen".
* TheWalrusWasPaul: It's often to tell where the actual "concept" of much of their work ends and the joke begins.
