The Amoeba People is a sort of a tongue-in-cheek rock band with lyrics, artwork, and song titles built around Earth and space science and humor. The band might come off as a little They Might Be Giants-y but does have a fun, diverse rock edge.
The band has been releasing albums and singles for years and in 2019 started a podcast where the singer/guitarist talks about The Amoeba People’s music and ties it in with a science expert. The podcast’s slogan “Where science and music collide!” is perfect for D.U.’s Science + Music content.
The host, The Amoeba People’s Ray Hedgpeth, has had on an oceanic cartographer, paleontologists, a volcanologist, and a planetary geologist, among other experts. Check out the podcast and get rocking.
