Austin experimental-pop outfit the Octopus Project produce some pretty far-out electro-psychedelic sounds (like a collaborative LP with tripped-out eye-crossers Black Moth Super Rainbow, 2006 album The House of Apples and Eyeballs, and soundtrack work that includes the strange yet lovely 2015 film Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter). The first single “Wrong Gong,” off their sixth studio record Memory Mirror, bodes well for the rest, a mix of fuzzed-out synths, urgent, roiling rhythms, saccharine-free boy-girl vocals, and expected doses of technotronic weirdness. Bonus: The highly intriguing Danny Reisch (White Denim), Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, Flaming Lips), and Greg Calbi (David Bowie, Talking Heads) mixed and mastered the record.
