It’s been a bit of time since I last saw Austin, Texas’s, The Octopus Project, but I didn’t hesitate for a second when it came time to pre-order their new album, Fever Forms.  I had the good fortune of seeing the band play twice a couple months apart back in 2011, the first time opening for Man Or Astroman? and the second time opening for DEVO.  On both occasions, their performance was nothing short of mind blowing and I very quickly became a fan of theirs.  Blending together influences ranging from late 70’s and early 80’s punk/new wave with electronica, post-rock, and psychedelia, The Octopus Project make music literally unlike anything else out there.  The above tune, “Sharpteeth,” is the first single off of their new record and only increases my excitement for their upcoming release.  Weaving together vast textures of synthesizers, guitars, drums, and, bar-none, the best theremin playing in music today, “Sharpteeth” shows The Octopus Project is in no danger of slowing down or becoming static with their sound.  If the band’s upcoming release, Fever Forms, wasn’t on your must buy list before hearing this tune, it should be now.  Holy hell is this band ever good and I literally can’t wait for them to make their way out to Southern California again soon.

More information on The Octopus Project can be found at their Facebook and official site.  Copies of the Sharpteeth 7" and Fever Forms LP can be pre-ordered over at Peek-A-Boo Records.

I’ve seen some posts about this weeks Supernatural episode and that it was ‘alright’.
But may just point out that Ragnarök, here on the silver bullet when Sam’s holding it, is scheduled for the 22nd of February this year, according to Norse mythology!!

It’s the apocalypse and the end of the world in Norse mythology… and you know, it’s 2014.

BEAR-Y SHARP TEETH! Stay super sharp with this Zen story from Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. ;) Number 84. True Friends. Along time ago in China there were two friends, one who played the harp skillfully and one who listened carefully. When one played or sang about a mountain, the other would say: “I can see the mountain before us.” When the one played about water, the listener would exclaim: “Here is the running stream!” But the listener fell sick and died. The first friend cut the strings of his harp and never played again. Since that time the cutting of harp strings has always been a sign of intimate friendship. ;) #bears #sharpteeth #mammothtales #besties #music
