All Music Guide:
With a sound that resembles what would happen if Tony Iommi played organ rather than guitar in Black Sabbath, the Apes have been playing throughout their native of Washington, D.C., since their formation in 1999. Consisting of Erick Jackson (bass/moog), Amanda Kleinman (organ), Jeff Schmid (bass), andPaul Weil (vocals), Frenchkiss Records would eventually release their debut full-length, The Fugue in the Fog, in 2001. The Self-Starter Foundation put out the vinyl version. Two years later, the band returned with Oddeyesee on French Kiss Records, and in 2004, they moved to Birdman for their third album Tapestry Mastery.
