Product Description

CD Description

Hello Avalanche, the Octopus Projects third proper full-length on Peek-A-Boo Records, is a bold step forward musically and artistically for the band whose recent successes include playing the Coachella festival and several sold-out nationwide tours, receiving a proclamation as one of Rolling Stones five stand-out artists at SXSW by senior editor David Fricke, and sweeping the Austin music awards. With ragged, furious, distorted guitars at one end of the spectrum and the pure, luminescent tones of the theremin at the other, the Octopus Project mines a staggering variety of sounds in between (via strings, synthesizers, drums, glockenspiel, trombones, etc.), filling their songs with brilliant contrasting colours and cascading waves of sonic bliss. Hello Avalanche was recorded and co-produced by Ryan Hadlock (Blonde Redhead, The Gossip) in February, 2007, and mixed by Erik Wofford (Voxtrot, Explosions In The Sky).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Sep 2008
By Healy H. Mackenzie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Everybody may not love this album. But if you have an open mind, enjoy creative and great musicianship, or love to listen to rocking experimental bands than buy this album!
There may be a few songs that aren't as good as the rest (so says others) but everyone I've had listen to this album agrees that this band and this album are worth looking into and buying.

My favorite thing is to play this while i'm driving and just let my mind float off.

P.S. You have to see this band live - I saw them at Warehouse Live and they were great. It was the most fun at a concert I've ever had.

4.0 out of 5 stars intriguing 27 Jun 2008
By bowery boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hello Avalanche immediately makes me think of a combination of mum's Yesterday Was Dramatic, Today Is Ok and LaliPuna's Faking The Books with little bits of IDM knob twiddling thrown in for good measure. If you're familiar with those artists then you'll know what expect: lo-fi electronics that swirl, caress and sometimes gets lost in rocking guitar riffs and drums. It hard to explain but it has the same effect on me as mum and LaliPuna did first time I heard them. Good stuff. I can't wait to get my hands on more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yay ochopus! 13 Oct 2007
By greenletter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Ochopus! Ochopus!" That's what we call them in my milagro town, the town where I was born and the town where I will die. And this disc will accompnay me in my pine box along with the fruit flies. Ochopus good! Fruit flies bad! In short, or in pant, this is THEIR BEST ALBUM YET!!!. I live a simple life, cleaning fish and riding unicycles, and this is the soundtrack that captures the inner whimsy borne from such a blessed existence. I saw da bright shinies! FIVE STARS!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting album with non-stop originality 11 Dec 2012

Very positive opinion of the album though. First time I heard this was on PS3 Music Unlimited and couldn't wait to hear every next track. Pretty amazing feeling when listening to the songs on this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars like an 80s video game 14 Dec 2007
By T. Plummer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Octopus Project sounds like an 80s video game. It beeps and buzzes. And it uses that basic synth sound we're used to hearing out of an old TV while playing Atari. Accompanying this is modern guitars, bass, piano, drums, and a drum machine. Except for the last song there are no vocals. It makes for very unique listening. Some songs rock. Others make you want to get up and dance. The whole thing runs out of steam a bit at the end. But with 9 really good songs out of 13, it's a very fun album to listen to. Definitely worth a listen and something you'll dig up every now and then for the sheer fun of it.
