I got into The Octopus Project about a year ago when I bought their The House of Apples & Eyeballs collaboration withÂ Black Moth Super Rainbow. I thought they were sorta okay, but wasn\’t into the far out stuff.
But this new album which came out last fall, Hello, Avalanche, is much more accessible. Â I love it.
I first heard their song Truck, which I think sounds like running. Â I daydreamed about making a video for it, all fast motion POV of a team race in the park.
This video I found on youtube comes pretty close to what I was thinking with its frantic motion and sped up footage:
I\’m including the last track of the album, Queen, here because I can listen to it so many times in a row and it still moves me. Â It\’s much slower than Truck. It\’s almost introspective.
