Octopus Jones set the tone for their new year early by releasing the first single off their upcoming album Phantasmagoria along with an album release date of January 23 and a string of supporting dates. Phantasmagoria will be the bands first official release since relocating to Raleigh, NC and with the addition of Tyler Morris on guitar/vox. For those O Jones fans more accustomed to the “spankwave boogie” of Danny Martin fronted songs “Strange Satisfaction” is a huge jump style wise. The single featuring Morris on vocals is more relaxed and hazy. A chilled out three and half minutes with sparse guitar riffs, hushed verses, and a dark moaning chorus.
