The Octopus Project

August 13, 2009

Quite a few excellent groups from Texas these days:  the post-rock boys Explosions In The Sky, the rather powerful and excellent Ume (mentioned here) and new to my ears The Octopus Project with a genre spanning sound- some great post-rock tunes along with some rather catchy jangly twee ones.

Wet Gold falls into the latter with some excellent female highlighted vocals…although the video is reminiscent of H.R. Pufnstuf which I had happened to see a few days before when following links from Land Of The Lost– yep quality childhood theme tunes still available in cyberspace!

Wet Gold

You can stream their new ep Golden Beds along with their previous ep Hello, Avalanche from their label Peek-A-Boo Records and if you head over to their official site you can grab some of their mp3s from recordings going back to 1999.  Some great tunes there so hopefully they will be doing a tour in Europe soon!



  1. They were here last May in The Sugar Club. Same night as Yeasayer / Ane Brun. Insane choices that evening.

    Have been liking that EP too!

    • Yeah that was the only night out the crazy May last year that I had any conflicts! Still glad I caught Yeasayer that night though…especially since I caught up with Ane Brun in The Sugar Club this year for the gig of the year so far!

  2. I think the admin of this website is really working hard in support of his
    website, because here every stuff is quality based information.
