    The Octopus Project

    Pop

    Austin's favorite experimental pop band, The Octopus Project, is set to return with their 6th studio album, Memory Mirror, in March 2017. The album was recorded by the band, mixed by Danny Reisch (Shearwater, White Denim) & Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, Flaming Lips), and mastered by Greg Calbi (David Bowie, Talking Heads).

    The Octopus Project has been releasing joyous party music since 2002, following a musical path that veers through blown-out rock’n’roll, vivid electronic colors, surreal pop and expansive psych landscapes. As performers they’ve earned a reputation for elaborate multimedia experiments and extremely loud, extremely fun live shows - a practice they’ve pursued over a decade of worldwide touring that has included festival stages such as Coachella, Lollapalooza and All Tomorrow’s Parties, and tours as handpicked support for artists as diverse asAesop Rock, DEVO, and Explosions in the Sky.

    Also active as composers for video games and film, they were awarded the Special Jury Award for Musical Score at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival for their work on the film KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER. They are currently working on another film score to be released in 2017 -- DAMSEL (directed by Zellner Bros. // starring Robert Pattinson & Mia Wasikowska).

    Blithe Field is the name under which Ohio-born singer-songwriter Spencer Radcliffe records and releases instrumental works. Forgoing an adherence to one sound or style, albums often take an experimental approach, combining and blurring the lines between acoustic and electronic sounds. Early works focused on a cut-and-paste style of composition to form downtempo, often beat-driven and ambient-leaning tracks. Over time, Blithe Field records have mostly eschewed the chatter of found sound snippets and sample-constructed drumbeats for a more orchestrated sound focused on melody and improvisation.
