All "Apes And Androids" stories

Majestyy – “The Notion” & “Spirits Touch”

It’s been a few years since the dissolution of beloved NYC glam-rock futurist troupe Apes & Androids, a sad, dry spell for spandexed prog-pop finally snapped in 2012 thanks to Chrome Canyon (the sci-fi synth project of that band’s keyboardist Morgan Z), and now courtesy of ex-A&A frontman Brian Jacobs and his solo project Majestyy.

Chrome Canyon Remixes ShadowBox

Chrome Canyon is Morgan Z (from the defunct Apes & Androids), an artist who creates throbbing, synth-based electro, and recently he imparted that sensibility on this remix of like-minded Brookyln musician ShadowBox’s “A M.” It’s a starry, anthemic take on the track. Download it below. More »

In Memoriam: The Bands We Lost In 2009

Scientists say the weeks between Thanksgiving and Chrismukkah are the most depressing time of year (or maybe I read that on Friendster) and it’s easy to see why. As we gear up for year end, spending awkward time with our extended families, it’s natural to take stock of the last twelve months and ask the… More »

Apes & Androids’ “Golden Prize” Video Unveiled Months After Breakup, And Charlie Day’s Offer For A Reunion

We’ve gone on and on and on about how great Apes & Androids’ live show is. Well, was. Past tense, because sadly, Apes & Androids are no more. In talking about last year’s greatest concerts, I said: “Live A&A are something like of Montreal by way of Spinal Tap (cue back-to-back harmonizing guitar solos, synchronized… More »

20 Great Concerts From 2008

I’m not the only one at Stereogum who goes out to see live music, but I’m the one who goes out to see the most live music. And then I’m the one who sits around anally cataloging and indexing it in photos and words, and then recataloging it in list form at year-end. To that… More »

The Forms/Free Blood/Reggie Watts/Apes & Androids @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 5/30/08

After Apes & Androids’ recent Hiro-ics, I recognized their live show was “going-on-legendary.” You know what? Friday night’s legend comes without qualification. There’s lots to love about these glam men, but what impresses me most about the Apes & Androids audio/visual experience is the patience and intelligence with which it’s been conceived. Either that or… More »

Apes & Androids @ Hiro Ballroom, NYC 2/28/08

I don’t get around to posting all the shows I see, and I came close to sitting on these pictures because little’s changed about how much I love A&A during the weeks we’ve had Apes & Androids’ scary good debut Blood Moon in Heavy Rotation. Or since I launched theMore »

New Apes & Androids – “Nights Of The Week” (Stereogum Premiere) & Free Show @ Hiro

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 i… More »

Apes & Androids @ Mercury Lounge, NYC 1/19/08 (Album Release Party)

By Amrit Singh
My last Halloween deteriorated within just a few hours, a well planned bowling-and-indie-rock extravaganza turning into a drunken trail of broken promises — as my Halloweens so often do — but even now, that night’s saving grace was finally seeing the band constantly touted as the best live show i… More »

Apes & Androids @ 29 Wythe Ave., Brooklyn 10/31/07

So this is what Stereogum’s Halloween looked like: A bunch of us dressed like Feist & The Indie Rock Choir (Feist like the video, choir like Letterman), went bowling at The Gutter, drank too much, shed a lot of sequins, and ended up at a big art space known simply as 29 Wythe Ave. for… More »
