'A knock-your-socks-off rock and roll album
PS Audio Octave Records; How many extraordinary recordings of rock bands can you name? Once you hear what Octave Records and the indie rock band Augustus have to offer we’re confident you’ll add this to the top of that shortlist. From their foot-tapping driving beats to their haunting melodies, Augustus never ceases to surprise and delight with their unpredictable power. Whether presented in the medium of mahogany strings or driving spirals of fuzz and reverb, the genre-bending indie rockers have released a steady stream of critically acclaimed music, licensed songs to MTV, E!, and the Discovery Channel. And the recording! Did we mention this is perhaps one of the finest rock recordings ever? We cannot wait until you fire up the album’s last track, James Dean. Think you can stop your foot from tapping? Impossible. Or keep a tear from shedding on the track, Diana? Hard to imagine. Ragtime World is a must-have for anyone that loves as much as we do, this wonderful music. A true genre masterpiece.

About Augustus
Since 2014, Augustus has toured the US and recorded five previous studio albums. Their core two-guitars-bass-drums-vocals sound is spiced with a variety of electric and acoustic guitars and amps (vintage guitar heads will have a lot of fun identifying the various gear, all plain to hear on this high-resolution recording) and additional sounds including lap steel guitar, mandolin, and even a Mellotron. The music spans a variety of moods, from the rockers “Carry All the Weight,” “Past Life” and “Leave the Lights On” to the spare, fingerpicked acoustic guitar of the title track and the ethereal “Daisies,” a song about “wanting to protect your partner and dealing with those anxieties,” as Colin Kelly noted. The instruments and equipment included a 1975 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe, 1997 Fender Stratocaster electric and Guild and Martin acoustic guitars, a Hammond organ, Yamaha DX-7 and Roland JD-XI synthesizers and a Yamaha grand piano, Fender Princeton, Vox AC-15 and Silvertone amps, and more.
