ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Initially the solo recording project started by Denver musician Lucas Johannes, Action Packed Thrill Ride was soon asked to play shows, and Lucas turned to friends (including Mark Cawthray on guitar and Jeni Sykes on violin) to help flesh out the live sound. Jon Evans was soon added on bass and
Duncan Dotterrer on drums.

"A Looseleaf Script" is the self-recorded and produced debut album from Action Packed Thrill Ride. It features their unique blend of indie rock, country, garage, folk, and americana as well as inventive arrangements, constantly shifting dynamics, multi-layered vocal harmonies, and quality lyricism. Guest musicians Luke Mossman(banjo), Jenny Brackhan(trumpet), and John Schaefer(vocals, harmonica) help round out the sound on the record.


Press:

"A Loose-leaf Script can take anyone listening to another time and place. Without the annoying twangs and banal, simpleton content found on most country albums, Action Packed Thrill Ride has found a way to create an intriguing and antiquated sound that will impress even the most avid country critic." - Laura Webb, UCD Advocate

"..on the cutting edge of Gothic-Americana, with harmonies heralding back to the days of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young...APTR is able to balance the bleak underworld of their Americana with persuasive percussion and vigorous violin, which lends to the contagious nature of the genre." - Jeremy Johnson - The Metropolitan

"APTR offers that rarest of treats, especially when it comes to such a traditional genre: a surprise at every turn" - Jason Heller, The Onion A.V. Club

hey, this is good stuff! "Songs in Reverse" was the reason I bought the album, but I ended up really enjoying the rest of the album. It's one of those that I love to listen to all the way through. Well, except number one. Sometimes I skip that one. I just can't get into it. But it's a great album, and I hope you come out with more!
