The greatest band you've never heard of

October Project has been around since '93, but if you've heard of them at all, it's probably for their song Return To Me, which was featured in a documentary about rescue workers at the World Trade Center. My uncle turned me on to them after their first album, when I was thirteen, and that was all I ever heard until I started working at KUMM, when I discovered, to my delight, that they've got like five albums, including a brand spankin' new one that came out in April. I have since downloaded half their catalogue, and it's been a beatiful experience, re-encountering this music that meant so much to me as a younger man. As of tonight, I have their entire collection on back order at my record store. Their style defies categorization; it's not rock, it's not folk, it's not electronica, it's October Project. Go now. Download one song, and come back here and tell me how right I am.

October / November / October Project

Hey, they took the old name back! I'm glad to see that they decided to become October Project again. I bought their first two albums when I was in college, and saw the original lineup perform in Boston once. It was very nice, very polished. I haven't heard the new vocalist yet.

Thanks for pointing this out! I didn't realize they had regrouped.

sooo jealous

I live in the midwest, so I'll probably never get the chance to see them. I'm green with envy.

Interesting

They remind me of Gorillaz in that they have a style that's eclectic but still manages to be cohesive.

The band that I've been getting into - even if I'm a little late for them - is the Dandy Warhols. Is anyone here into them, even if they're probably a bit out of fashion?
