Actors and Uncanny Valley at 9910

This is pop weekend & Pabst Blue Ribbon present...

Actors (Vancouver)

The Jason Corbett-led outfit ACTORS are standing on the shoulders of titans with their brand of the style, and could almost be referred to as "post-post-punk". In a period where we narrowcast rather than broadcast so fans and new music-seekers can firmly plant themselves in a niche, Corbett takes swings at creating sounds and production techniques that one would not usually find in a starter package of cliché plugins and samples. Backed by a stoic yet playful backing band, the frontman shows an enthusiasm while performing and recording that often isn't seen or heard in his preferred genre

Uncanny Valley

If you close your eyes while listening to Uncanny Valley, you might imagine punk-era Devo covering the leather-clad period of Depeche Mode — played at least twice as hard. This synth-driven powerhouse of post-punk rips and snarls with ferocity, but never forgets to keep chunky rhythm or jubilant synth melody at equal prominence in the mix.
