On their self-produced sophomore release, ACT reinterprets your favorite aspects of a modern rock mixtape and weaves them together in ways that catch you pleasantly off guard, creating a genre-defying style all their own.


"On its new album, “Ballyhoo,” local (Portland, OR) art-rock combo A Cautionary Tale has once again created a genre-defying album that’s arty without being pretentious; dreamy but muscular; disorienting but totally accessible. This time around, the songs are a little poppier, and the disparate elements and influences blend together even more seamlessly than before. If you’re looking for something to tickle your brain and your eardrums while causing you to tap your toes, A Cautionary Tale should be right up your alley."
Barbara Mitchell - Portland Tribune

Like an iPod set to shuffle, Portland quartet A Cautionary Tale leaps between genres to a point where, if you weren’t paying attention, you’d think that multiple bands were performing. As it is, it’s hard not to pay attention as the band bounds between styles and evokes everything from Radiohead to Morphine, Rodrigo y Gabriela, jazz greats and hard rock. Like a non-metallic System of a Down, it’s all seamless—and with the kind of skill and whimsy that makes it impossible to resist. AP KRYZA. Willamette Week 11/19/08.
