Artist Spotlight::The Bees & The Octopus

For a while, The Bees latest release Octopus has been tearing up my cd player. Their record Free The Bees was great and this newest one may even be better. I don’t think there is another band out there that pulls off marrying such diverse influences. Whether it is sixties psychedelia, reggae, or straight up rocker The Bees always come away with something fun. The opener Who Cares What The Question Is?, is straight out of a Beattles playbook, while The Ocularist is a latin sea shanty. If you liked their other stuff this one will not disappoint, and if you hated them before I’m sure it won’t change your mind. Octopus is straight up and unapologetically The Bees.
