Octagrape will have cassette versions of the new Sounds Familyre album Mayor Major Maxion Marble with them on tour:
Take one-half of Trumans Water mod I (Glen Galloway and Ely Moyal), add Vytear noise-dub head Jason Begin, send them on four quick tours and a trip to Gonerfest, add Alexander Dausche on the most electric bass…and what have you? A unit with road warrior ears, poor bleeding hands, and a strange desire to cover four of wild jams they treasured the most on those all-night drives through Wyoming and Pittsburgh. Major Mayor Maxion Marble features “Syntoptikon” from Twisted Village’s Major Stars, “Ghost Punch” from Sacramento’s Mayyors, “Verfremdungseffekt” from Pluto’s Dymaxion, and “Melted Moon” from Tokyo’s Marble Sheep. Tribute, homage, thrill-bent annihilation. A 4-song cover EP.
You can hear the track “Ghost Punch” (a cover of Boston’s Mayyors) here.
The bands will be selling a three-way split cassette in support of the tour. Here is “A Ton Of Love” from Octagrape:
