Tonight: The Octopus Project @ the Ottobar

The Octopus Project have primarily been an instrumental purveyor of pleasantly noisy electronic pop, but their new EP dabbles in the art of spoken language.

If you're worried the group's heavy use of theremin and xylophone in creating dreamy matrices of sound might be lost, peep the video for "Wet Gold" off of Golden Beds above. Still a bit skeptical? Stream the entire new EP for free right here, and be pleased to discover that the majority of the album is more like the Octopus Project you've come to know and love. Golden Beds is now out on California's Peek-a-Boo Records.

The Austin-based group hits the Ottobar tonight, with locals Seldon Plan, Light Trees, and A+ Gold Star. The show starts at 9 PM and will run ya 10 dollars.

Great show, they've really tightened up a lot since catching them a few years ago.

Were people really moshing though? Really?
