iTunes Editors’ Notes

Just when you think this electronic group might have hit a proverbial wall, Austin's Octopus Project shows a reenergized strategy for its fifth album, 2013's Fever Forms. Having written film soundtracks and significantly raised its profile, Octopus Project here sounds more aggressive and user-friendly than ever. "The Falls" roars from whatever underground battlestation the group occupies. That sets up the liquid charge of the multi-planed "Pyramid Kosmos," which goes beyond simple arpeggio execution into a trickle-down vibe where the bouncy melody subsides and lets one breathe before taking on the pure-pop schematic of the album's first single, "Whitby." This is where the group temporarily shrinks down to fit through the narrow noise-hole of an imaginary AM radio station for electronica fans. Two and a half minutes later, the band adds the punkish, vocal-heavy "Death Graduates." It also mines prog ("The Mythical E.L.C."), Sonic Youth post-punk ("Mmkit"), ork-pop ("The Man with the Golden Hand"), ambient ("Perhap"), and skittishness ("Choi Signs") by album's end. 

Customer Reviews

Amazing

Favorite band of all time. Super original, none of that poppy repetitive crap from the radio. They stick to who they are. Beautiful album. Even better than all the others, and they were amazing too.

Best!

They are too awesome to really explain. Loved ever since I discovered them a long time ago!

These guys are great

If you get the chance to see them live do it. Nothing is sequenced. Everything is performed. The theremin playing is ridiculous. You have to see them.
