Best described as "ambidextrous equipment failure junk-tronica," The Octopus Project have created a unique form of music that deftly combines the experimentation of progressive post-rock, the blips and bleeps of electronic music and the raw, human ROCK of rock.

Throughout "Identification Parade," organic instruments like guitars, bass, drums, bells and theremin blend with electronic beats, programmed loops and well-chosen samples to create a soundtrack that ranges from lush and haunting to danceable grooves to outright rock.

The Octopus Project's reputation as "the band that hooked up their half-broken electronic shit all wrong" first caught the attention of Peek-A-Boo Records in 2001, but actually seeing the band play their half-broken electronic shit way, way too loud in a dingy Austin bar sealed the deal, and to date The Octopus Project holds the honor of being the only band recruited to the label after only one show. The result is this stellar, self-produced debut album.

Release Date:  April 16, 2002
