Austin's favorite experimental pop band,The Octopus Project, returned with their 6th studio album,Memory Mirror, in March 2017. The album was recorded by the band, mixed byDanny
Reisch(Shearwater, White Denim) &Dave Fridmann(Tame Impala, Flaming Lips), and mastered byGreg 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 Tomorrows Parties, and tours as handpicked support for artists as diverse as Aesop 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 2014Sundance Film Festivalfor their work on the film KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER. They are currently working on another film score to be released in 2018 — DAMSEL (directed by Zellner Bros. // starring Robert Pattinson & Mia Wasikowska).
