Alternative/Indie Rock

The Octopus Project are a clever bunch whose take on indie electronic music is as smart as it is joyful. While the sense of fun that dominated their earlier music is hardly gone from Hexadecagon, the scope and imagination of their compositions and the skill with which they carry them off in the studio confirms this band takes their music quite seriously, and rightly so -- this music is powerfully rewarding and confirms the Octopus Project have moved into the front lines of America's most imaginative and accomplished indie rock bands.

Contemporary Pop/Rock

Buckingham's largely acoustic 2006 solo release is a deceptively minimalist affair that that stands as one of the most nakedly visible and tender albums of his career. Full of depth, emotional, and typically brilliant guitar work, it marked the first of three excellent late-career solo outings over a five year period.
