Album Review

No rehashers of the new new wave, the electro-rockin' Octopus Project kids aren't afraid to rock yer skinny tie and white belt right off with a heady assortment of IDM-esque analog glitch and circuits-out robot groove that would make Trans Am tremble for their ferocity. Instead of retro-cutesy synth poppers, the tracks on Identification Parade, the Octopus Project's debut, are no-holds-barred experi-/instrumentals set to stun, either through tweaked minimalism ("What They Found," "Its Caption Was a Star") or overdriven outrocking ("Righteous Ape and Bird," "Porno Disaster"). Defying all expectations of toothless indie schmaltz, these musical subversives take a battering ram to the listener's solar plexus via an assortment of unexpected textures, sudden rhythmic twists and turns, and even the occasional headbanging riffmonster that belies the deceptive simplicity of such an innocent looking three-piece. Expect more surprises to come!
