Ahead of the July 9th release of their fifth studio album, Fever Forms, The Octopus Project have revealed the video for the single “Sharpteeth”. Filmed in their hometown of Austin, Texas at the Scottish Rite Theater, the video opens with feather/furry headed humans performing and observing the song until a theremin encounter in the mystery jungle brings in the human-headed element.
The Fever Forms album is also available for pre-order on the site in a variety of formats (digital, vinyl, CD) as well as in a “Super Deluxe” format that includes the singles, t-shirt, and most awesome, a 3D Viewmaster + 3D reel.
Note the pluralization of the word “single”. In addition to “Sharpteeth”, the track “Whitby” is also available as a single and below for your listening pleasure.

If you haven’t been checking on Spoon’s website over the past three years or so, you missed out on quite a few outtakes. Well, Spoon felt bad about that, but not that bad as they are now selling those tracks on a CD or digital download as Spoon Bonus Tracks 2008-2009 (Tracks Below). Recommended for those who wish “You Got Your Cherry Bomb” had more country flava. Plus, everything is 10% off for the holidays, including that Spoon-branded prayer candle for those difficult to shop for devout hipsters.
