The Octopus Project
The Octopus Project
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 by Danny Reisch (Shearwater, White Denim) & Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, Flaming Lips), and mastered by Greg 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 Tomorrow’s 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 2014 Sundance Film Festival for 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).

Indigo Plateau
Indigo Plateau is a project created by SLC locals Michael Paulsen, Evan Pack and Andres Escobar seeking to explore the space between dream-pop, post-punk and art-rock. Constructing lush arrangements of guitars, bass, drums, synths and noise, Indigo Plateau intends to create symphonic and energy-filled soundscapes.
