If our Heavy Rotation’s to be believed (and yes, it is), we literally can’t get enough of New York clusterfucking, pop-is-eating-itself crew Apes & Androids. When a band goes so many directions at once, it’s hard not to head back for seconds. One of our many favorite tracks from the excellent new Blood Moon is the after-hours new-wave anthem “Nights Of the Week,” which chops up “Message In A Bottle” in the service of some campy fun that feels very much like The Ziggy Stardust Picture Show. The message in this bottle: Get out and d.a.n.c.e.

Hear a little Freddy Mercury rising there toward the end? Nights of the week, knights of the weekend. Yes, as we’ve previously reported, A&A do indubitably put on on hell of a show — and it’s very much in the spirit of “Nights Of The Week” — so if you’re in the New York area at the end of the month check them out 2/28 with Devlin and Darko of Spank Rock at Hiro Ballroom. Admission is costless if you follow the RSVP link. If there’s a must-see band in NYC these days, this is the one. It’s a spectacle.

Also, if you haven’t already, please do check out some of those Blood Moon tunes spinning at MySpace or purchase the thing at apesandandroids.com. One more cut before you go — N.E.R.D.-y, of Monty, etc.:

    No wonder they sound like Call Florence Pow. It IS Call Florence Pow. I’ve had this song on my ipod for eons and keep checking the old CFP sites waiting for more music from them. If you like “Nights of the Week”, check out CFP’s “Creepy Girls”- I hope Apes & Androids pick up that tune as well!!!!
