Now I'm stuck on their new EP, "Golden Beds." While their earlier work avoided vocals, the new EP is no longer music only. The song "Wet Gold" makes a break from never using vocals -- the result is dreamy and wonderful. The EP goes from ethereal, to rocking out, to heady and out there, to upbeat to head-boppy. Just listen. It's blowing my mind. This just became my new favorite music to paint to.
"The opener, "Wet Gold", is wonderfully layered. The delicate rising flourishes through out lift and energize the listener. I prefer the band's instrumental work, but this track proves that the band can make compelling songs with vocals." "“ Raleigh Indie Music Examiner
"This Austin, Texas, ensemble extends an alternative tentacle from the land of barbecue, honky-tonks and down-home bohemia: The Octopus Project tap a refined yet animated electronic pop vibe that sounds way cooler than Ghostland Observatory, more gadget-friendly than Shearwater." "“ San Francisco Chronicle
