New Band To Burn One To-The Octopus

The "New Band To Burn One To" today is The Octopus.

There is not a lot of info to be had on this band, but here is a quick bio:

The Octopus, is a heavy rock band from Detroit.

The band features former members of other Detroit-area bands (Electric Six, The Dead Bodies, The Deadstring Bros and the Detroit Cobras), none of whom are known for being the least bit stoner/doom/psych-y. But the band works a large plot of land in the stoner/psych/fuzz neighborhood.

From what I heard on their MySpace page, the tunes are very heavy psych-tinged rockers. Sometimes a bit punk, sometimes whimsical, this female-fronted band keeps your attention with some very well though out nuggets. Contact the band if interested in obtaining some of their work.

As the Detroit News states, "Fronted by Masha Marjieh, who is as beautiful and as she is cool, Octopus has heavy songs that sound best when played at full blast right in your face."

  2. Well the future is soon. I just bought their discography
