Drummer wanted for indie jam-rock band with five albums

We're looking for a talented drummer to get together for fun and record some tunes, and play occasional gigs. We will be working on our sixth studio album.

For a good sample of our style, check out the Spotify playlist "Octopolis: Hits": https://open.spotify.com/user/octopolist/playlist/5UwKE6JHLPnAvfMav2OqV9?si=OrXQPgV1S8G6PaTMpwYKmg

We write and record silly, irreverent, eclectic indie rock music under the name Octopolis. The music is catchy, but also has twinges of odd-times, strange key changes, and some tastefully complex musicality to keep it interesting. Lots of different types of rhythms so the songs don't sound or feel the same. We're a good opportunity for you to show off your great chops: yes, you can even take a solo! I might describe the music as Zappa-lite indie rock with Louis CK humor, a touch of jam, and a touch of roots.

What we're looking for is someone who actually likes the music and has good chops. Practice location TBD once we know where you live, but we're flexible. Bassist lives in LA, guitarist in Claremont.

  • Here's some of our song titles:
  • Holy Shit, I'm a Dad
  • Meth Lab
  • Going to Bed Early Tonight
  • Cancer, Suck My Balls
  • Small Price to Pay for Pussy
  • Corn in my Poo
  • Me and My Electric Car
  • Fuzzy, My Invisible Friend

...you get the idea
