DIIV
Oshin

'Oshin' gave us our first taste of DIIV's sentimental and summery dream pop stylings. Zachary Cole Smith of Beach Fossils fronts the group, who take a huge amount of influence from 90s shoegazers, 80s post-punks and a whole host of jangle pop groups. Often the sound is dreamy and melodic, sometimes its driven and rocky. They wear their influences clearly on their sleeves, but that doesn't stop them from being one of the best groups of their ilk.

Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

I have a feeling that Mac DeMarco may be a fan of Minor Threat. Because who actually uses the phrase 'Salad Days' any more? This is his second album proper, featuring more of that incredibly casual and personable crooning that he's built his career on. DeMarco is the sort of musician who seems to be enjoying himself so much that it's difficult not to get swept up by it.

Becca Mancari
The Greatest Part

Becca Mancari is a singer songwriter out of Nashville who earned plaudits for her debut Good Woman which introduced to the world her acoustic songsmithery. A million streams later it's time for the follow up. The Greatest Part is a more realised affair with electronics and beats and in Hunter a lead single that heads off towards Kate Bush/Bat For Lashes territory.

Mac DeMarco
2

Oh what a scamp. Everyone's favourite mommy's boy indie rock prankster Mac DeMarco has named his debut album '2'. Whatever next! For all the silliness, Mac can right a bloody good song, and make it sound just weird enough to maintain his credibility. '2' is extremely warm-hearted and as charming as his smile.

Locate S, 1
Personalia

Locate S, 1 is Christine Schneider. You may also know her work under the names CE Schneider Topical and Jepeto Solutions. Personalia, her second album, is inspired by the pop sounds of Abba and Kate Bush and built with her left field approach. Themes of environment, feminism, money and power dominate the lyrics. On Captured Tracks.

OXZ
Along Ago: 1981-1989

Dealing in dark and gothic post-punk that was ahead of its time back in the early Eighties, OXZ - an all-female trio in Japan’s underground scene at a time when few women were visible in the entertainment industry - enjoyed a sporadic yet influential career. Along Ago: 1981-1989 collects their entire discography of three EPs and one single on a 12-track vinyl, with seven extra unreleased demos available as downloads.

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 dope-fugged Millennials? Would Meredith Graves be sewing up dresses rather than flying high at Kickstarter? Would we have had to deal with DIIV? Who knows. What we do know is that the second volume of their 10th-anniversary sampler CT10 is very reasonably priced.

Wild Nothing
Laughing Gas

Multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist Jack Tatum begins a new decade with a new Wild Nothing EP. Laughing Gas is the latest edition to a highly acclaimed discography which on his last album, Indigo, saw elements of classic ‘80s bands (Cure, New Order, etc) coming through. The five tracks on offer here were recorded during the same sessions.

Molly Burch
The Molly Burch Christmas Album

Oh lord we're getting the Christmas albums appearing on the site already and my local Boyes store already has its selection boxes on display. I'm writing this in October but by the middle of December we might be wanting a bit of this to go with our mulled wine. It's a Christmas collection from Austin chanteuse Molly Burch where she covers the usual classics (Auld Lang Syne, Last Christmas) and adds in a few originals and rarer seasonal compositions. Also: Ginger cat on cover.

DIIV
Deceiver

'Deceiver' is the third album from Brooklyn, New York band, DIIV. The band trade in fuzzy shoegaze dream pop with poetic lyrics. Their last album, 'Is The Is Are', was critically well received and even got a decent review on here! At least this album title is a little easier to say out loud than its predecessor.

Lina Tullgren
Free Cell

A significant expansion on the aesthetics of her ambitious 2017 debut album Won, Lina Tullgren could win a much bigger fanbase with her sophomore effort Free Cell. Dynamic and tense, while retaining the elements of introversion and reflection that made her debut so acclaimed, Captured Tracks have got themselves another real diamond. 

Molly Burch
Ballads

Molly Burch’s first release of new material since 2018 sophomore LP First Flower is evocative and wistful. This one’s entitled Ballads, and both ‘Only One’ and ‘Your Party’ fit into the well-worn singer-songwriter lineage. However, there is an economy and sparsity to the songs that places them more at the Angel Olsen end of the spectrum than, say, the tongue-twisting storytelling of Bob Dylan.

B Boys
Dudu

Rhythmically clever New York punkers B Boys bring you Dudu. The last album was called Dada, so perhaps Didi, Dede and Dodo are forthcoming as well. Anyway, the band continue along the trajectory of their punk and post-punk predecessors (The Clash, Wire) to comment, often humorously, on everyday life in this absurd civilisation of ours.

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 versions of the tunes that comprised his beloved sophomore album. The real thing was dreamy and crystal-clear, but here's your chance to hear them a little more daydreamed, with a little less confidence, with a little more excitement. It's 2 Demos.

Juan Wauters
Introducing Juan Pablo

Here he is. That funny little man from the Beets. Makes interesting Jonathan Richman type stuff and has that whole 'who me?' shtick going on. He's a little like Pedro Sanchez from Napolean Dynamite. Does pretty well for himself and has supported Mac De Marco. This is his third album. Enjoy him.

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 Tracks.

Mac DeMarco
Rock And Roll Night Club

For his debut solo album, Mac DeMarco slowed the tape down so that his voice became a loungey, sleazy baritone and this, mixed with his superb songwriting made for a stunning record which stands alone somewhat in his catalogue. It comes across as a kind of lo-fi take on the dingy Americana of the likes of Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen and Dwight Twilley. Later records were more breezy and conventional but this is one of his best.

Juan Wauters
La Onda De Juan Pablo

The first of a number of albums that Uruguayan visual and musical artist Juan Wauters plans to unleash during 2019, La Onda De Juan Pablo was recorded on the road during a trip across the South American continent and sees Wauters revisit his Latin roots. Furthermore, he reverts from singing in English to his native language.

Drahla
Useless Coordinates

Long-awaited debut album from Leeds’ very own Drahla on Brooklyn indie imprint Captured Tracks. Mixing wiry, raw post-punk with the dark and volatile textures of art-rock and Luciel Brown’s abstract lyrical preoccupations, Useless Coordinates was recorded in short gaps between hard touring throughout 2018.

Reptaliens
Vails

Reptaliens are influenced by sci-fi literature and art - their second album Valis takes its name from a Philip K. Dick novel. Their music takes its cues from the spacey weirdness of Todd Rundgren, the experimental lounge jazz of Gary Wilson and the comforting sounds of Broadcast.  After starting as a duo with no aspirations other than to please themselves, members were added and they became a band, hitting the road with STRFKR, Cults and Of Montreal. On Captured Tracks.

MOURN and Chastity
Sun

7" featuring collaborative track between MOURN and Chastity as well as a live take from each. MOURN are a Spanish punk band whose main influence is Throwing Muses. Canadian Chastity plays a lil' harder, reaching the distortion ridden, riff heavy end of punk. Together they go at it with full hearts. On Captured Tracks.

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 stoner bliss, DeMarco's music feels classic and cozy, and now you can hear how the record that got him out in the limelight came to be.

HXXS
MKDRONE

The merciless bounty hunters at Captured Tracks have pulled the net tight over another selection of indie ephemera. Mind you, HXXS’ MKDRONE is a mite more out there than the Mac Demarco-ish pop that the label has become known for. The Kansas City duo bring a sound here that takes the languid anti-punk of Micachu & The Shapes and smashes it together with some Alice Glass-y chip-tronica.

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, actor/TV 'funny' man Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge have gone back into the studio to make new material.  You expect us to believe this?

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 intimate thoughts, carefully composed with a seething anger just below the surface.

Capital Punishment
Roadkill

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 line-up, however. Supreme Court Justice Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, actor Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge. LP and CD on Captured Tracks.

Wild Nothing
Indigo

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’s ever done. In short, it’s quite a lot like the last The War On Drugs record. You either like this sort of thing or you don’t.

Chastity
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 revolves around the concept that the pain of living knowing we’re going to die is tempered by the ability to cope with that knowledge. LP and CD on Captured Tracks.

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. With songwriting this good, Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love could well prove to be a big record for 2018.

FF (shoegaze band)
Lord

‘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, as they’ve broken away from the current tedium of 90s revivalism. That’s what the press release says though so I suppose they would have to say that.

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 the band’s crunchy keyboard sound does the work of a distorted six-string. This being a Captured Tracks release, there’s a nice seam of poppiness that runs through Wax Chattels. Think At The Drive In meets The Gun Club.

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.

Perfect Pussy
Say Yes To Love

Perfect Pussy burned bright and flamed out quick. 2014’s ‘Say Yes To Love was the only studio album that the band released before disbanding, but it's an LP whose impression is still felt on the worlds of hardcore punk and noise-rock. There is fury to the sound that Meredith Graves et al presented here, but also playfulness and invention, with melodious riffers like ‘Big Stars’ and ‘Interference Fits’ giving way to washes of droning feedback later in the album.

Lina Tullgren
Won

Captured Tracks have unearthed yet another quietly impressive singer-songwriter in the form of Maine resident Lina Tullgren. There are shades of Joanna Gruesome, Ought and Colleen Green across Won as Tullgren turns in a record of well-groomed, vaguely grungy American indie. Whether climbing for falsetto or down into the lower reaches of her range, Tullgren’s voice maintains a coy neutrality that only serves to make her songs more intriguing.

Widowspeak
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 the usual watery arrangement, it sees songwriter Molly Hamilton examine and revisit her hometown.

Naomi Punk
Yellow

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.

Mac DeMarco
This Old Dog

Here he comes again, wearer of North America's filthiest dungarees, that gap toothed smile presumably still intact.

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 swinging songs in just a little over a day. Please Be Mine is out on Captured Tracks.

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.

The Soft Moon
Deeper

The reclusive tones of The Soft Moon betray its humble origins: the project was never meant to be heard. But private press doesn't remain private for long, in most cases, and Luis Vasquez soon shared his melancholic wasteland of cold synth and post-punk with the world. Deeper is what it says: another additive work that offers more details to his personal truths using the same downbeat but forcefully melodic sound.

Pale Blue is the new project from Mike Simonetti. Simonetti enlisted the incredible talent of Silver Hands’ vocalist Elizabeth Wight to be the focal point of Pale Blue.

Having left the Italians Do It Better label, Simonetti has formed the 2MR label in collaboration with Brooklyn-based Captured Tracks label. The Past We Leave Behind is the first release on 2MR
