Given the show I saw last night, I’m about ready to go on tour with this band. Imagine if Battles was a bit more accessible and little less math rock-y, and you’ve got yourself one tremendous band called The Octopus Project. Go see these guys on the smaller stages while you can, because following the David Fricke recommendation, the Lollapalooza appearance, and the Austin City Limits appearance already booked in their hometown, these guys (+1 girl) are poised to have a big year.
