The Octopus Project - Fever Forms
Artist:
The Octopus Project
Album Title: Fever Forms
Label: Peek-A-Boo Records
Released: July 9, 2013

The Octopus Project is a born and raised Texan band straight out of Austin. Although their music is mostly instrumental they often have great performances with complex light shows and energetic stage presence.

Fever Forms is the latest album to be released by The Octopus Project and follows closely to the style and sound the band has been perfecting over the years coined as indietronica. With a mix of driving grooves and strong synths, Fever Forms creates a unique and melodic experience. With songs that range in all tempos from a slow music box song (Unspool) to a driving song (Pyramid Kosmos).

“Pyramid Kosmos” is one song in particular that can define the band’s sound in comparison to another band like Animal Collective. Both bands use synth loops to create a surreal tone and this is pronounce throughout all of Fever Forms. The biggest difference is that with The Octopus Project the classic rock set up of drums, guitar, and bass are featured more.

Overall, this album is a good listen to anyone who enjoys shoegazer music with a little more driving grooves. Along with people looking for bands similar to Animal Collective. If you are looking for lyrics this is the wrong choice to go with.

The Octopus Project often has performances throughout Austin, Texas for anyone looking to see them. They are also welcomed performers at South by Southwest and are known to put on their best performances during the festival.
