Anders Johanson Apart from the awesome name (one of my favorites I've ever seen), Summon the Octopi delivers some great jams. Long live the one-man post-rock project! Favorite track: Apricots Apricate (Alligators Alligate).

"I can't praise this EP enough; it's just incredible." - HOLDUPNOW

"This act are defying the genres that surround them and creating something of their own." - CIRCUIT SWEET

"All in all, Nonversations is a terrific effort by the self-described "one-dude band from Berlin, Germany." " [7.5/10] - PURE GRAIN AUDIO

"Post rock that produces eargasms so profound that your mind explodes into a trillion pieces, reforms, then blows again!" - PLUGGED IN PROMOTIONS

""Vogler pushes forward the post-rock aesthetics on his latest recording." [4/5] - THE CD CRITIC

"Thankfully, Summon The Octopi don’t sound like every other band…There is a true originality to every track" - PLANET STEREO

"'s hard not to just go with the flow and allow the instruments to just take over." - A LOT LIKE DREAMING

"This is music to take in large draughts as the more you explore, the more you will be enthralled." - EMERGING INDIE BANDS

"Nonversations often looks like one thing but keeps turning into something different while you're not looking. Pay close attention..." - RECORD REWIND PLAY

Listed in Ondes Chocs' *4 albums to Discover* in November 2014:
"Alors à “Nonversations“, je dis oui! Très belle découverte!" - ONDES CHOCS

"I would highly recommend giving it a listen." - AVRIL MARIE

"Un disque original et surprenant, entre post-rock instrumental délicat et rock abyssal torturé..." - TOTOROMOON

"Il sound è radicato su strutture post-rock caratterizzato da ritmi non sempre lineari, una leggera nota psichedelica e passaggi canalizzati sia su trame robuste che su quelle melodiche." - SONOFMARKETING

"Germans are stereotypically known for their precision and efficiency. This, the debut release from Berlin based post-rock purveyors Summon The Octopi does nothing to refute such cliches. The musicianship is precise, working in elements of mathrock, and the enjoyment is efficiently achieved. Danke." - 4ZZZ BRISBANE 102.1FM
