20 Minute Hourglass EP (PopSmear Records)
Fans of mainstream rock should be impressed with San Francisco indie band Scene of Action’s latest offering. From instrumentation to production, the trio captures perfectly the dark, dynamic, and yearning style that has dominated modern rock radio for the last five or so years — and these six songs would feel quite at home on an arena rock stage.
