The Octopus Project: “Wet Gold”
You might remember The Octopus Project from last year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival, or from their critical acclaim both at South By Southwest and the Austin Music Awards. Their new enhanced EP, Golden Beds, comes out next month and their website has this to say about it:
The Octopus Project’s latest EP presents five different tunes from five different rooms in the band’s neon mansion of sound. Some are new, some represent fresh takes on ideas from the past, and each explores a different facet of their omnivorous sonic creations — from big-riff rock to tiny electronics to blissful sing-alongs. So roll up those shirt sleeves and dip your arms deep into this kaleidoscopic candy jar full of tasty Octopus-flavored treats of both the audio and visual variety. With over 40 minutes of sights and sounds, The Octopus Project’s new EP will have you strapping on silver-stitched shoes and jumping on Golden Beds without a care to what Mom says.
The Octopus Project is currently on tour – making a stop here at Stubb’s on July 4th.
Today’s song of the day is Wet Gold from the upcoming Golden Beds EP. -Meg Murphree
