Reposted from the Peek-a-Boo Records Website: The Octopus Project just finished recording a third album for Peek-A-Boo Records at Seattle's Bear Creek Studio. The new record will feature 14 of the 16 tracks recorded in the session, including “An Evening with Rththa,” “Moon Boil,” “Queen” and crowd favorite, “Truck.” According to band member Josh Lambert, the new record features lots of theremin, in many cases layered and harmonized to create a “theremin orchestra.” “It'll rip your face off,” says Lambert.
While the band's previous record featured a variety of guest musicians, the new recordings were performed almost exclusively by the core trio, with two rather large exceptions. Apparently, a couple of celebrity musicians stopped by the studio one day on unrelated business and ended up lending their skills to not one but TWO Octopus Project songs. See if you can identify them in the photo above.
The Octopus Project leaves tomorrow to play a couple of dates at the Spring Scream Festival in Kenting, Taiwan, and the yet-untitled album is slated for release in late Summer or early Fall of this year.
