    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    California Heart is the second full length and sixth release from San Francisco’s Great Apes. The record, akin to much of the band’s earlier material, is thematic. With California Heart, the concept is a fictional one, revolving around an alienated adolescent residing in Fresno, CA. Each song is written in first person and tackles a myriad of subjects including mental illness, suburban doldrums, creativity, nature as a sanctuary, social isolation, perceptions of adulthood, cliques, bullying, drugs, suicide, and an ever-crystallizing and often cynical view of the world. In its entirety, the record is intended to be a portrait of navigating coming of age as an outcast, in a stagnant and less-than-nurturing environment. Although the writing is founded in fiction, it’s undoubtedly inspired by personal experiences, and anyone who grew up feeling weird, anxious, down, and/or angst-ridden in a place they wanted out of should have no problem finding points of relation.

    The record was recorded over four days this past spring by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden.

look at the robots dating with their thumbs
click to lick / swipe to cum
edit yourself / no flaws seen
desperate sales pitch / sex machine

do you like me?

look at the pretty ones wowing the crowd
basking and beaming / shallow and proud
hiding their secrets between white teeth
makeup coverup / doubt beneath
do you like me?
all the crushing couples - hormones in the night
enamored ‘neath the disco - bathing me in spite
look at me - bitter out of place
judging others while longing for embrace
the last of the losers / loveless freak
melancholy stoner nihilist geek

do you like me? I hate me.


from California Heart, released October 14, 2016

Great Apes San Francisco, California

Insert hype-up descriptors here. Plain and simple, San Francisco's Great Apes are a lyrical punk band. Music, much like a bio, is often at its best when it’s spit out intensely and quickly, with concision and honesty.
