Drums vs. drum machines. Samplers vs. guitars. Take these oppositional elements, add a willingness to start a band first and learn how to use the gear later, crank it up to 25,000 and under certain laboratory conditions another band like The Octopus Project might emerge. The Octopus Project has created a unique sound perhaps best described as “ambidextrous equipment failure junk-tronica,” merging the experimentation of progressive post-rock, the blips and bleeps of electronica and the raw, human ROCK of rock.

Toto Miranda, Josh Lambert and Yvonne Lambert play with un-self-conscious joie de vivre. They create irresistible music – a feat all the more amazing considering none of their songs follow anything close to a rote pop, rock or dance structure. You can only call what they do happiness.

“If there’s a such thing as a happiness seizure, be prepared to have one.” — Paste Magazine

    I would like to see Octopus Project at Holocene because they’re a great band and they don’t make it to the NW very often.
