Action News Team / Press

“These Edmonton natives describe their sound on their Facebook profile as "psychedelic weirdness" and indeed, you'll find a host of unusual sounds floating in between the songs. From samples, to grizzly guitars, to blues style singing; the songs resonate with that old-school rock vibe that makes it enjoyable from the getgo. Strictly DIY, it's hard to believe the guys were able to create such a raw, enigmatic sound while recording in their basement and using a four mic setup. The band also did just two takes for each track, picking the better version out of the two and running with it. Although there are moments when you can tell it was "homemade," you'll be too busy enjoying the sound to even care. You'll find a nice throwback to 70s style rock and roll that makes the album even more appealing.”

“ The first band up was Action News Team. Every time I’ve seen Action News Team play, my band has been scheduled to play right after, so between being nervous and getting stuff ready to go, I haven’t been able to give them my full attention. Thankfully I was able to do this last night and I was really impressed. It was exciting to see a band that can switch from a near fifties rock grove to near straight up punk speeds with such technique. I was also really impressed with Max’s guitar playing and pedal work.”

“Με τέτοιο όνομα θα μπορούσες να φανταστείς πως πρόκειται για ανεξάρτητη ομάδα ακτιβιστών δημοσιογράφων, αριστερών καταβολών που επιδίδεται στο “Trolling” και στο ανέβασμα κειμένων στο Indymedia.”
