Apes and Androids are a new band. In fact, they only have a few shows under their belts so far as we can tell. However, we have rarely seen someone come out of nowhere and gather so much attention in such a quick time. They've already earned a coveted Oh My Rockness recommendation star for both of their upcoming shows. As the name suggests, they blend a precise electronic sound with pure animal emotion. Rather than rattle off a decade and genre spanning list of bands they seem to be influenced by, we'd recommend simply heading over to their myspace and listening for yourself. It is like nothing else coming out of this scene right now.

They'll at Sin-e this Saturday, July 1st. We expect to be there.
