Call Florence Apes & Androids

Apes & Androids

 NYC based Apes & Androids rose from the ashes of Call Florence Pow, one of the handful of bands to be signed to Spongebath Records (a Murfreesboro, TN indie label that was once home to Self, The Features, Fluid Ounces and Count Bass D).  Back then, childhood chums David Tobias and Brian Jacobs wrote and recorded the album, These Are the Plans, with the production assistance of Matt Mahaffey.  The LP was dropped in 2000. 

When Spongebath went under, the duo focused their efforts on building a reputation around a strong stage presence.  The boys added a couple of band members along the way, which inspired the name change to Apes & Androids.

 Under the new moniker, the band’s original sound has grown more complex and dynamic.  A new album in 2008 is expected, and they’ve offered up a song for download through their website. 

“Golden Prize” showcases a fantastic combination of cascading syths, sultry beats, Beck-like vocals, falsetto Queen-inspired harmonies, and an abundance of finger snaps, hand claps, and la la la’s.  If this song is representative of what’s to come in 2008, get ready to sweat through your shirt at your favorite local venue when they roll through town.

    Best sentence in MiS history.

    Weird, but that’s why I enjoyed that LP I snagged of theirs. Solid write-up, Schreiber. PBrig is hooking up a new horizontal pic. You game?
