My new domain host (Zymic) doesn't provide email and no mx records, either. Is there a way to direct the email coming in to my domain to google apps (or another domain) without mx records?

You need MX records. Period. There may be tricks if they currently don't go to google apps to redirect your mail. But it has to go somewhere to start with.
If your host really doesn't let you set MX records (which is unlikely) transfer your domain to someone who does.
