In a recent email, Lee said he first started writing brassy dramatic single "Octopoda" in 2009 after the death of Masterati's Jerry Fuchs, and messed with it for a few years before bringing it to the band, "around the time we were doing the Sabbath record, which is pretty prevalent with the ending that Nowicki wrote. We debuted this at SxSW in 2010 to about a dozen people (half WMNF'ers) and this version features the new lineup with Alex on trombone and our engineer/producer Owen Meats on güiro."

PNL is attempting to raise some funds with sales of this single to pay for additional studio costs, production, merch, etc., for their sophomore record, Electric Acres. They are currently in the process of mixing and mastering nine other tracks at Short Circuit Studio, band friend Charlie Doan (who you know from his impeccable bartending at Fuma Bella) is working on the artwork (he also did the awesome cover of King of Spain's new record), and if all goes as planned, the LP will see a fall release.
Right now, you can visit the PNL Bandcamp site and pay $1 or more (don't be cheap!) to snag your own copy of "Octopoda," thus owning the right to listen to it instead of having to simply stream it here (which we encourage you to do as well!).
