The Octopus Project

We live in an age where electronic musicians commonly tour in the same circuit as rock bands. In other words, EDM artists are finally catching up with the Octopus Project. The Austin, Texas, quartet has been recording, touring and generally kicking ass live since the year 2000 (or about as long as the average Skrillex fan has been alive). With a barrage of instruments from thrift-store Casios to electric guitars and a healthy serving of theremin, the Octopus Project perfects the Jetsons-esque view of the present millennium in which nostalgia and futurism coexist in a delightful panic.

The Company It Keeps: The Octopus Project can list Explosions in the Sky, Trail of Dead, the Sword and Man or Astro-man? as its tour buddies. Oh, and Devo. The band toured with Devo.
