"Sound Team is an American music band based in Austin, TX. Four of the six group members - Bill Baird, Matt Oliver, Sam Sanford, Jordan Johns, Gabe Pearlman, and Bill's younger brother Michael - all attended Alamo Heights High School in San Antonio, TX, where they played music in several different loud ensembles. Eventually they all wound up in Austin. Bill Baird and Matt Oliver met in Austin in 2001, when each was a sideman in one of the many pick-up groups playing the beer-joints around town. They formed a partnership, and immediately began recording crazy songs on cheap gear that drew inspiration out of everything from traditional American folk and pop song forms to German synthesizer music.

In 2002 Baird asked his younger brother Michael, Michael's friend Jordan Johns (both of whom were still in high school at the time), and his old friend Sam Sanford whether they'd like to make a band. After playing a handful of shows in various performance spaces and punk dives, Gabe Pearlman enlisted and the lineup was solidified by early 2003. The group released a 7-inch, several cassettes, and their audience continued to grow. After touring throughout 2003 and 2004, the group continued to work dead-end jobs, pooled their cash, and converted an abandoned record-pressing plant into a make-shift analog recording studio. The result was the Marathon LP, which appeared on the St. Ives label, a vinyl-only imprint of Indiana's Secretly Canadian. In the fall of 2005, several songs from previous cassette and vinyl releases appeared on the Caroline-distributed WORK EP. In June 2006, they released their long-awaited debut album, Movie Monster, on the Capitol Records label."
