Last updated: 10/25/2012 05:42:20 AM

James and Evander is an electronic duo based in Oakland, California consisting of Adam Myatt (James) and Glenn Jackson (Evander). After meeting in school they started working with Bay Area bands such as Grand Lake, Form and Fate, Evacuee, and Port O'Brien. Meanwhile the duo started creating songs together. Their music lies somewhere between Dntel and Tortoise with a touch of electro-pop. The melodies are simple, the drums are programmed and glitched, and the layers of guitar and synthesizers control the mood and direction of each song. Two of the bands songs were also featured in a Wikipedia PSA.
