Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 1

Captured Tracks have done a decent job of shaping the world in their own image over the past decade. Since launching in 2008 the Brooklyn label has tended to blow the winds of change in American indie rock by promoting artists such as Wild Nothing, Mac Demarco and DIIV. Those th...view item »

Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 2

A decade of Captured Tracks, eh. What kind of world would we be living in if the Brooklyn label hadn’t risen to the top of the indie-rock pile since launching back in 2008? Would Mac Demarco still be eating his own shoes, cartoon-hobo style, in a Tribeca loft rather than cooing politely for huge crowds of ...view item »

Capital Punishment
This Is Capital Punishment

Right, this is getting ridiculous. It was a pretty far fetched idea for us to expect to believe that the earlier Capital Punishment re-issue was made 35 years ago by an all future star line up including Ben Stiller. Now we are told that the quartet including Supreme Court Justice judge Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, act...view item »

Molly Burch
First Flower

This is the second album from Molly Burch following the success of her Please Be Mine album with its smoky jazz inflected vocals which led her to tour with Grizzly Bear, Courtney Barnett and others. Now with man friend in tow she returns to the scene with an album in which she delivers her most ...view item »

Saâda Bonaire
Saada Bonaire

I’m so obsessed with the ‘80’s these days that I’m seriously considering buying a ticket to ‘Lets Rock Leeds Live’ - the family friendly 80’s festival featuring Alexander O’Neal, Brother Beyond and Nick Heyward amongst others. C’mon it will be great.   Sadly not confirmed to play...view item »

Capital Punishment

Capital Punishment were a teenage band who formed in New York City in 1979. They took their influences from Throbbing Gristle, Brian Eno, Chrome and Cabaret Voltaire. Roadkill was their only album and was self-released. The interesting thing about them is their ...view item »

Mac DeMarco
2 Demos

Yes, 2 Demos. Not 2 Demos in the sense that there are only 2 Demos to listen to, but 2 Demos in the sense that the record provides demos for the Mac DeMarco release that was called 2. And hence: 2 Demos. Breezy-boy soft rocker Mac serves up the heyday v...view item »

Mac DeMarco
Salad Days Demos

"Salad days are gone" sang Mac DeMarco on his beloved and commercially adored record Salad Days. In fact they are not, because he's now putting out his Salad Days Demos, collection original iterations of songs praised for their sparkly, rich guitar tones, breezy melodies and reassuringly chill themes. AM rock turned s...view item »

Mac DeMarco

Despite the sleeve depicting him as some kind of buffoonishly made up grandson of one of the New York Dolls, I fell very quickly in love with Mac DeMarco’s debut 12” (though long enough to be an album) ‘Rock and Roll ...view item »

Twelve Divisions of The Day

Oooph! Well, well, well. Wakefield's finest post-punkers have reached the rarified air at Captured Tracks Brooklyn, NY HQ and not only that the fine label has decided to release a 7" by the band who more likely than not are going to be pretty big especially now that Robert Smith has invited them to play his Meltdown. ...view item »

Wild Nothing

My giddy aunt this is an 80s-sounding album. Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing gig might always have had a fair whack of New Order/The Cure/Echo & The Bunnymen about it, but fourth LP Indigo is the most unabashedly pop-type-thing that Tatum&rsquo...view item »

Wild Nothing

Now after a slew of curious 7"s by little-heard-of types, this boutique retro-indie label is chucking full-lengthers at us now! The initial impact of this CD is reminding me of the gentler wing of early 80's alternative pop, such as feyer Scouse acts Wild Swans, China Crisis & The Lotus Eaters - well blended with some class shambling shoegaz...view item »

Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

Yes its the Return of the Mac. This is Mac De Marco’s third full length record and its safe to say that if you like the first two then you are going to find plenty to swoon over here.  He’s long discarded the pitched down croon he used on the first side of the corking ‘Rock and Roll Nightclub’ debut and has adopted a...view item »

Death Lust

A re-issue of demos on Brooklyn label Captured Tracks has fuelled a burgeoning interest in Canadian punks Chastity. Support slots with Priests, Fucked Up, Metz and Chelsea Wolfe have only made people more excited about their debut LP Death Lust. The album revolv...view item »

Sorpresa Familia

Captured Tracks have captured some more tracks (ahem) from Catalan outfit MOURN. Twelve febrile, jittery post-punk numbers here, with Sorpresa Familia set to please anyone who enjoyed last year’s live-wire Over The Wall EP. Manages to recall all of Good Throb, Pis...view item »

Gabriella Cohen
Pink Is The Colour of Unconditional Love

Captured Tracks have gone and captured themselves another bunch of tracks from Australian songsmith Gabriella Cohen. The follow-up to her 2015 debut LP sees Cohen honing her craft and turning in some well-heeled indie-pop in the vein of labelmates Mac Demarco and Craft Spells. W...view item »

FF (shoegaze band)

‘Lord’ is the debut LP from Seattle-based punk trio FF. They claim to make gloomy, ethereal punk anthems inspirited by the Northest DIY underground scene of their hometown. Their sound has be likened to My Bloody Valentine, Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Flying Nun Records cabal by lazy journos. Apparently this band is different though,...view item »

Earth Dies Burning
Songs From The Valley Of The Bored Teenager (1981-1984)

As reissue culture finally eats itself we have for your delectation a compilation of Brad Laner’s (Medicine) childhood band. I’m not certain which extra qualities have been seen in their angsty caterwauling that have raised it above the zillions of spotty, sexually frustrated teenagers that have ...view item »

Wax Chattels
Wax Chattels

Auckland’s Wax Chattels self-identify as ‘guitarless guitar music’. This description makes plenty of sense when you get a load of their eponymous debut LP. There’s a lot of rock-isms going on here - the yelpy vocals and pounding drums of a garage rock band, bass licks with a light punk-funk flavour - but ...view item »

Tides End

But do they, does a tide end? Can you stop the tide coming in armed only with a bucket and spade? Who knows...but what I do know is that this lot wrote this album in an underground bunker listening to only Seal and Simply Red records. It’s a shame they didn’t take on board some of the softer sounds of those records on the first track...view item »

Martin Newell
The Greatest Living Englishman

Now that Mark E Smith has left this mortal coil, Martin Newell could indeed be a contender for greatest living Englishman. His work with the Cleaners From Venus and Brotherhood of Lizards is enough on its own to win him the title. This is the 25th anniversary of his Andy Partridge (XTC...view item »

Gift Wrap
Losing Count

Brendon Avalos is another one of those artists who though why bother working with a band (in his case B Boys) when you can just do everything yourself. So he's gone down the solo path culminating in an album of experimental electronic pop which takes in influences all the way from Depeche Mode to Frank O...view item »

Perfect Pussy
Say Yes To Love

Just freaked the gaffer out by proclaiming I hated this. 'But Clint is tweeting this ASAP!' he barks back at me. Um sorry, I had confused it with something else on Captured Tracks which is still way better than most NY labels. Perfect Pussy, apart from having a great logo, a smirky name and a gutsy shouty girl for a singer are quite stun...view item »

The Apartments
The Evening Visits and Stays for Years (Expanded Edition)

The Apartments main man, Peter Milton Walsh made a big noise in the Brisbane alternative music scene of the late seventies and early eighties. So much so that none other than Grant McLennan and Robert Forster from fellow Brisbanites The Go Betweens asked him to join their band. He did, but not for long. They wer...view item »

The Brotherhood of Lizards

Been waiting a long time for this to be re-issued. This is the short lived 'other' band of the Cleaners From Venus main man Martin Newell but there's not all that much difference in the sound. It still has that perfect '80s update of classic '60s pop and the sort of melodies that other bands would kill for. Once again it was ign...view item »

Cleaners From Venus
The Best Of

Straight outta 1980’s Wivenhoe came Cleaners From Venus, the magical DIY pop project of Martin Newell. This Best Of compilation plucks choice tracks from a nine-album career, presenting multiple sides of the Cleaners’ sound, always made in the moment and on Martin...view item »

Mac DeMarco
Another One

Smooth rolling singer-songwriter duuude Mac DeMarco has a new record out, even though it was just a year since the last! Excellent work ethic. Another One has eight fine tracks of his sauntering melancholy style, featuring not a note from anybody but DeMarco himself: a real solo album! Out on Captured T...view item »

Living With Victoria Grey

Ok, loads of Cleaners From Venus stuff in this week. We won’t have time to write about all of it save to say, the band are rather like Guided By Voices in that once you pop, you can’t stop. 'Living With Victoria Grey' is made up of a series of quite brilliant songs which ende...view item »

Expect The Best

As if Widowspeak have been around for seven years? Life, it would seem, really does come at you fast, and this band of hybrid folk rock and dream pop continue to make strides in their sound, now coming a long way from their Fleetwood Mac inspired debut. A record of patient deliberation and th...view item »

Naomi Punk

Really oddball sounding lo-fi sound collage rock from this three piece who have toured extensively with Parquet Courts to the point where their Andrew Savage writes the press release here. He's smitten for sure. I'll take his word. It's really wobbly off kilter stuff but there's pop hooks 'neath the sludge. ...view item »

Alex Calder / Homeshake
Nankhatai / Stuck Inside

Montreal artists Alex Calder and Homeshake both pull out an exclusive cut from their archives of bedroom-produced pop magic, in order to raise funds for the International Refugee Assistance Project. The Homeshake track is notable for its disorientating woozy tempo changes, and Calder...view item »

Mac DeMarco
This Old Dog

Here he comes again, wearer of North America's filthiest dungarees, that gap toothed smile presumably still intact. Last year's 'Another One' had him a little more measured and melancholy and certainly the first two tracks teased from this have a similar hushed vibe but with that twanging jangling guitar and warm mid fi pop sound intact...view item »

Molly Burch
Please Be Mine

Please Be Mine is the debut album of Molly Burch, a singer trained in jazz vocal techniques but taking herself in slightly different directions when it comes to her own music. Along with her tight knit band, featuring Danny Toliver and Dan Duszynski, she recorded these cool, sweetly swi...view item »

Gabriella Cohen
Full Closure and No Details

Here is a direct and highly intimate debut from Gabriella Cohen, recorded at home in Australia with the assistance of close friend and associate Kate Dillon. Full Closure And No Details is a sweet set of indie-pop songs with 60’s summer melodies and pleasingly simple production. The album is relea...view item »

Matteo Vallicelli

Matteo Vallicelli is the drummer in The Soft Moon as well as a wide brace of Italian punk bands, but his first solo album, Primo, is something different. Vallicelli moved to Berlin a few years ago, and naturally the 4/4 beats in the air led him to explore electronic music. These pulsing...view item »

Chastity is the project of Brandon Williams, broadcasting from a Canadian suburb that is apparently positioned so that Toronto is tantalisingly out of reach. The frustration of youth is a key theme on Peroxide, a song as heavy with emotional drama as it is with reverb, piano and big-chorus drums. 7&rdqu...view item »

The Stray Trolleys
Barricades and Angels

If, like me, you've fallen in love with the music of Martin Newell via the various the Cleaners from Venus and the Brotherhood of Lizards re-issues on Captured Tracks then here's another one to add to the list. This delves further back in time to the late '70s and Newell's rickety new wave outfit the Stray Troll...view item »

Beach Fossils
Shallow / Lessons

Beach Fossils are another Captured Tracks band that seem to sell shitloads of records.

Ha, Ha, He.

Mourn made a Pretty Damn Good debut record quite recently: their self-titled hit the proverbial shelves in 2014, and proved a confident and knowing garage rock record, one that could wink back at the classics while crafting new enough hooks. Now they're back, and apparently amused, with 'Ha, Ha, He.'; one assumes the hooks while be as short 'n' ...view item »

Chris Cohen
As If Apart

Chris Cohen has played with Deerhoof, Cryptacise, Cass McCombs and plenty more, but here he leads proceedings himself. As If Apart is a lovely set of gentle guitar-led pop, somewhat in the vein of a classic San Francisco 70’s rock songwriter LP. Strong songs, but ...view item »

B Boys
No Worry No Mind

Coming at you straight out of Brooklyn, NYC, are the trio of B Boys, who play a cool kind of surf-garage punk-rock (surfing in the garage? Does that work?).

Cleaners From Venus
A Dawn Chorus

Here is a vinylized version of the bonus CD of goodies that finished off the 'Volume 2' edition of the Cleaners From Venus box sets that were released on Captured Tracks.

Psychic Lovers is the debut album from Danish producer Dinner and it sharpens the melancholy synth pop of his first three EPs.

Mac DeMarco
Another (Demo) One

Mac De Marco's latest effort 'Another One' was like drinking Ben Shaw's 'to dilute' orange juice after bingeing on Tropicana for ten years. Generally as weak as a piss in a reservoir, it showcased the first signs that Mac was starting to believe his own hype and actually not trying that hard. So this Record Store Day it's time t...view item »

DIIV have produced a whole 17 songs for their hard-to-say-out-loud second album Is The Is Are.

Naomi Punk
Television Man

Over the last four years, Olympia-based punk trio Naomi Punk - featuring singer/guitarist Travis Coster, guitarist Neil Gregerson, and drummer Nic Luempert - have been lighting up DIY warehouses and large concert halls alike with their singular brand of mid-tempo, cathartic punk.

Donovan Blanc

Captured Tracks valiant and worthy attempts to fill the world with dreamy, jangly 80’s-inspired pop continues unabated with this laconic album by a couple of New Jersey strummers. The sound is of course lovely, lots of jangling guitars referencing Real Estate, Field Mic...view item »

The Servants
Small Time / Hey Hey We're The Manques

Lets get it out the way, The Servants were England’s answer to The Go-Betweens. They had the strummy guitars, 60’s influenced pop moves and oddball time and chord changes that littered the Australian bands’ early work.  After appearing on the C86 compilation, they were later joined by ...view item »

Nick Nicely
Elegant Daze - Songs From 1976-1986

When the internet was first up and running I once spent several evenings trying to find an mp3 of 'Hilly Fields (1892)' by Nick Nicely. It's one of those eerie, dreamy tracks that somehow is totally out of its time, transporting hazy late 60's marijuana soaked psychedelic pop to the post ...view item »

Cleaners From Venus
My Back Wages

This is probably the finest of the recent Cleaners reissues. Following on from 'Number 13',  this album (as with all of these originally released on cassette) shows a more mature approach to Martin Newell's songwriting. The highlight is 'Gulf War Song' a superb evocation of life after a mindless war. Lyrically and musically brilliant, ...view item »

Cleaners From Venus
Number Thirteen

The next installment of the Cleaners re-issue project is 'Number 13'. Like all of these albums there are tracks you'll want to skip but also contain songwriting so fine you simply can't believe that someone somewhere couldn't nuture Martin Newell's wayward talent and turn him into an 80's pop hero. The opener here 'The Jangling Man' is superb an...view item »

Craft Spells

The law of averages says I’m going to find an album I actually like this week. Y’know, that I might take home and shit? The fact that this is on Captured Tracks and that the opening track sounds something like a Wild Nothing/Real Estate hybrid suggests I may have hi...view item »

Their first 3 EPs, their debut album Daddy’s Highway, which is regarded as one of the best albums to come out of New Zealand, and it’s follow-up The Law Of Things.
