about

This is a completely improvised track done in one take. It was released as a split with Metronome the City. Each band has a 20+minute track.

Here's a review from Jonathan at Builtonaweakspot.com:

The first track "Craig Has a Beard Now" is from the trio of Blake Lewis (guitar/keyboards), Michael Lentz (guitars/keyboards), and J. Steigner (drums) that is I, Octopus. The track almost immediately establishes itself with a bit of a spacey/psych vibe but with the added emphasis ..board and electronics there is a bit more "noise" to deal with here than one might expect. The tune rises and falls many times throughout its lengthy course, and during the slower/quieter parts is where a lot of the more interesting experimental aspects of the band take place in my opinion with various ambient noises peaking out from the haze before the band works into a larger guitar filled sound. While not the every day classic pysch/space worship band, I think I, Octopus should find plenty among that circle regardless.
