wewantaction, a new record label based out of Columbus, Ohio has begun cataloguing the progression of a growing community of artists working towards the same goal -- promoting and supporting our scene. This collection highlights a few of the artists who actively attempt to make a name for themselves and Columbus. All of the music on the compilation was recorded and produced by Jon Fintel at Relay Recording. It is a collaborative effort among wewantaction, Relay Recording and the bands involved through an exchange of ideas. We book and promote each other's shows, perform on each other's tracks, and simply support each other however we can. We're really excited about the music that's coming out of Columbus and upon hearing this, we hope you will be too. Fresh off their Warner Bros. Debut EP "Love and Death" and a single on Rough Trade, The Sun offer up their first new studio track just in time for their Reading & Leeds performance. According to NME, "The Sun remain relentlessly energetic and compelling. They're on the rise." Tiara are gearing up for their 4th studio release, "Summer of the Lion, Summer of the Lamb" due out on wewantaction and Japan's Noon Records. "Drawings" may be their finest work to date. CMJ writes "a welcome addition to the more melody-minded rock pantheon currently lorded over by bands like Built To Spill and Guided By Voices." With one release to date, a three song EP on wewantaction, Denovo is already dropping jaws with their inspired live show. This Autumn brings a tour of the East Coast and dates across the Midwest, hopefully landing them somewhere near your neighborhood. "Q and not Who? At The Drive What? That's right, Denovo will rock them right out of your memory." Bettawreckonize.com 84 Nash released their first two records for Robert Pollard's (of Guided By Voices) label, Rockathon. They have since developed a cult-like fan base throughout the Ohio area. Alive stated "the band should revel in the fact that it's produced one of the year's great records." Kopaz's angular guitars and spacey hooks recently caught the ears of LA's most notorious A&R "Jive-Ass Motherfuckers," Silencio crosses the boundaries set by speed metal, John Zorn, and Herbie Hancock. Frostiva--the synth noise chic-driven electronique discoteque thang. Templeton caught the eye of an Ocasek with their glammed-out noise pop, Miranda Sound equates to memorable melodies, The Frequent Desk writes sonically charged math pop, The Last Hotel evokes the ghosts of John Lennon and Harry Nilsson, and Dave Powers is a 25 year veteran of the Jazz scene. Flotation Walls tour the country in a school bus, wearing yellow dance outfits, bringing joy to the people. Enjoy.
