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?

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 three and more appear on CT10: Volume 1, a cut-price sampler intended to hoover up any stray music lovers who’ve remained immune to the CT charm thus far.
  • Vinyl LP (CT281LP)

Various
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.

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.

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.

Drahla
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. 
  • Vinyl 7" (CT288)

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.

Mourn
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, Pissed Jeans and Shopping, which is impressive. There’s also a song called ‘Bye, Imbecile!’.

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.

Blouse
Blouse

Not of course the Chris Morris fronted Pulp parody from Brasseye but a Portland based art school collective who feature someone who went on to be in Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Expect sumptuous dream-pop with synths and alluring guitar lines.  This re-press is part of the celebrations for Captured Tracks 10th anniversary.

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.

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) produced solo debut which pretty much everyone but me thinks is his greatest work. If you are looking for sublime 60s influenced English pop, you have come to the right place. 
  • Label(s):
  • Captured Tracks

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 Ocean.   
  • Vinyl LP (CTSP43LP)

Robert Earl Thomas
Another Age

Robert Earl Thomas’s voice and guitar stylings might be familiar to listeners from his time with Widowspeak, but guess what? He also has a solo project. Another Age is an engagement with loved rock influences (like Bruce Springsteen), though Robert relocates the bigger moves into a more intimate, personal space. Out on Captured Tracks.

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 were chalk and cheese. Perhaps just as well really as The Evening Visits and Stays For Years, The Apartments debut album proper, wowed the British music press upon it’s original release in 1985. Thanks to Captured Tracks, we now have the reissued and expanded version to enjoy. The Evening Visits and Stays For Years is available on double vinyl LP with download code and CD.

The Brotherhood of Lizards
Lizardland

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 ignored by the public at large possibly to do with Newell's insistence on touring only by bicycle.

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’s own terms. Crucial underground artefact, out on Captured Tracks.

Chastity
Chains

Popping up again after February’s Peroxide 7”, here’s a quick, propulsive EP of angst-ridden post-punk from Whitby, Ontario resident Brandon Williams, or Chastity. Brickwalled and intense, to these ears Chains comes out sounding quite a lot like the peculiar and anachronistic notion of Nirvana covering Deftones.

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.

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.

Reptaliens
FM-2030

FM-2030 is the very first album to be released by Reptaliens, a band who feature a stellar line-up drawn from bands such as Wampire, Brainstorm, Woolen Men and Blouse. Sci-fi and obsession are themes that helped the band craft their songs, lending a theatrical intensity to the group’s sound. FM-2030 is released by Captured Tracks.

Alex Calder
Alex Calder

Alex Calder returns to the full-length album format for the first time in a while, titling it with his own name for good measure. Alex Calder is a serious (but not mopey) record in terms of lyrical content and general intent, with more fully-developed production than much of the man’s previous work, allowing every detail to shine just right. On Captured Tracks.

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.
  • Vinyl LP (CT266LP)
  • CD (CT266CD)

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.

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’s track is well catchy. 7” on Captured Tracks, all proceeds to the Project.

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.

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. 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 released by Captured Tracks.
  • Vinyl LP (CT262LP)
  • CD (CT262CD)

Matteo Vallicelli
Primo

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 minimalistic tracks are the result of his explorations, which saw him largely abolish percussion. Vinyl release on Captured Tracks.

Chastity
Peroxide

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” on Captured Tracks.
  • Vinyl 7" (CT256LP)

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 Trolleys. His melodic instinct is already perfectly intact and here coupled with songs of a more glammy persuasion referencing Roxy Music, Lou Reed and Bowie.

EZTV
High In Place

EZTV whet our whistles last year with their debut 'Calling Out' which updated the ace power pop of the likes of Shoes and Big Star for a young fresh generation of melody fans. Here, they've bought a new studio invited some friends like Jenny Lewis and Martin Courtney to help out and upped the ante so that we can all enjoy their tuneful aching jangling songs.

Mourn
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' sweet as a quick lil' laugh.

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 more importantly a lovely feel throughout. On Captured Tracks.

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. This one delves way into Martin Newell's murky past and includes his marvellous solo punk songs from the late '70s including 'Young Jobless' which was used to try and get people off the dole! As always with Newell you need to delve deep and adventurous listeners will find a host of hidden gems.

Dinner
Psychic Lovers

Psychic Lovers is the debut album from Danish producer Dinner and it sharpens the melancholy synth pop of his first three EPs. Anders Rhedin’s sound pushes the textures and production of 1980s pop into extremes, including his distinctive croon. By doing this he highlights just how strange and sad these songs can be.

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 to rejoice in being able to hear the actual demos for that record. I'm excited. This is a bit like when they released that 'Pet Sounds' box set.   

Boulevards
Groove!

Despite its diverse instrumentation and big band atmosphere Boulevards is dominated by the presence of one man, Jamil Rashad. His deep and emotive vocals power the electronic soul of Groove! Whether the background is early hip-hop productions, or 1980s party jams, he can be relied on for smooth and funky vocals.

Milk ’n’ Cookies

New York’s Milk ‘n’ Cookies never achieved much success, something that is hard to fathom when listening back to the recordings: their sound is bursting with life-energy, directed to a sharp pop-punk point.

The Wake
Here Comes Everybody + Singles

A thoroughly comprehensive compendium of The Wake in-and-around their fabled Here Comes Everyone album, in celebration of its 30th birthday. Captured Tracks once again do the honourable thing in bringing these unique, dreamy post-punk sounds to a wider audience via a plush reissue. The album tracks are joined by music from singles, EPs and unreleased demos from the era, spread over 2 discs.

Widowspeak
All Yours

Widowspeak produce a beautifully languishing music, Molly Hamilton and Robert Earl Thomas winding their melodic lines together. Hamilton sings gently but passionately, and the band’s instrumental backing billows slowly. All Yours is a very accomplished third album, and is released on Captured Tracks.

Michael Vidal
Dream Center

You might know Michael Vidal as the frontperson of punk-people Abe Vigoda, but Dream Center, his first solo outing, shows a very different side of his musical thinking. This is a more indie-ish set of guitar pop songs, with a tinge of electronic ambience making up the background. Reissue of the original 2013 cassette, on Captured Tracks / Couple Skate Records.

Martin Newell
Teatime Assortment

Martin Newell is in this game for life, and generally prefers the direct intimacy of self-recorded home demos to ‘proper’ studio behaviour. Although to call them demos is to disparage them: Teatime Assortment spans a few years worth of this home activity, and show a genuine compositional depth coupled with a loose, of-the-moment feel. On Captured Tracks.

Juan Wauters
Who Me?

Juan Waters sings and arranges songs that wrap up existentialism (see the title, Who Me?) within a parcel of upbeat melodicism. Waters isn’t afraid to disrupt though, dropping unexpected sonic elements into his tracks, such as audience applause in the middle of ‘She Might Get Shot’. On Captured Tracks.

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.

Do you remember what you were like in 2012? I had a crazy mustache (it was good, trust me (I’m serious)), long hair and a crazy girlfriend. It’s good to remember times gone by, even if you’re glad they’re over. That’s what Dinner thought while recording his debut album. Here are his three EPs from the past 3 years, released together on vinyl. And so much has changed - the EPs are all over the place, but all hit the right spot: our heart.

Pale Blue
The Past We Leave Behind

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.

Connie Converse
How Sad, How Lovely

Squirrel Thing/Captured Tracks reissue the 2009 collection of songs by the enigmatic Elizabeth Eaton Converse on vinyl and CD. ‘Connie’ Converse was a 1950s singer-songwriter who disappeared without trace in 1974. The music gathered on this album illustrates her free-spirited, poetic approach to US traditional music, which has made her an influential figure in spite of her slim discography.

Nic Hessler
Soft Connections

Optimistic and introspective, Nic Hessler’s ‘Soft Connections’ record was a long term labour of love and growth for the musical self explorer on the brink of a personal breakthrough. The thoughtfully crafted songs are a pilgrimage towards purpose and direction, a soundtrack to your own personal coming of age movie or failed romance.

Mourn
Mourn

Mourn like the old-school punks, but, like, the good ones that we don't listen to enough: they cite the song-writing of PJ Harvey as an influence, as well as the lo-fi indie pop antics of Sebadoh. Their sound is fitting: Mourn has confrontation at all costs, and drives home its ideas through a flash-in-the-pan resilience and rawness.

Bunny Lion
Red

Some soul soothers on this one from Bunny Lion. Red is getting the repress treatment, even though it evaded the limelight the first time. Featuring vocals from Linval Thomas, this record is raw, outrageously grooving and a delicious slice of dubbed out reggae for those wanting some untapped rootsy vibrations. Turns out Bunny Lion is in fact Puddy Roots so ya better snap it up. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Captured Tracks.

Perfect Pussy
I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling

I Have Lost Desire For All Feeling first gained attention when it was self-released as a demo EP back in 2013. Subsequently, Perfect Pussy's brand of urgent and febrile noise-punk continued to prevail with their 2014 debut LP Say Yes To Love being critically praised. And now, their debut release gets the attention it deserves with a vinyl and CD repress.

Alex Calder
Strange Dreams

Full length indie pop album from Alex Calder, another talented singer/songwriter from Edmonton, Canada. Focused, psyche and spooky songs meet jangly bright guitar in this album on Captured Tracks. Once one half of Makeout Videotape with Mac DeMarco, now doing his own lo-fi thing. Fans of Deerhunter will love it. Vinyl and CD.

Mac DeMarco
Demos Volume 1

Chill daddy and stoner seminar leader Mac DeMarco actually did a few takes of the songs on 2 and Salad Days, if you can believe it. His sunshine pop is given an origin story with Demos Volume 1, a nice little CD that puts the inner workings of his recent songs on display. If you want to hear some unreleased nuggets and the sound of DeMarco fucking shit up from his very own bedroom, you'll want to hear this.

Molly Drake
Molly Drake

Molly Drake is Nick Drake’s mother, and these are home recordings made in the 1950s, never intended for public consumption. Of course, we cannot escape the Nick context when listening, but Molly is a bewitching musician in her own right, and although the songs are her own, she imbues them with the feeling of familiar standards. Also, one of the crispest accents you’ve ever heard sing.

Juan & Carmelle
Wearing Leather, Wearing Fur

Some heartfelt sincerity from Juan & Carmelle. Wearing Leather, Wearing Fur is the new release from this duo of poets. This continuous near quarter hour of non-stop picking guitar-meets-spoken word - waxing lyrical about the every day to the life and times of James Brown. Similar to She & Him, Julie Byrne and Kimya Dawson. Out on 12" vinyl from Captured Tracks.

Mega Bog
Gone Banana

Mega Bog's intoxicating pop music has a learning curve, sounding slightly off-centre at first but becoming more and more irresistible as time goes on. The whispered vocals, barely strummed chords and skittering drums often sound like they've been produced from the other end of a church, but they usually envelop into something full-bodied and striking. There are conventional indie pop moments, sudden offerings of jazz bluster and signs of the avant-garde in 'Gone Banana'.

Shiny Two Shiny
When The Rain Stops

Back in the early 80s, Gayna Florence Perry and Robin Surtees combined to form Shiny Two Shiny, a moniker they worked under to craft tight synth jams with the occasional foreboding moment --- it never got too serious, though. They only released one record, 'Halfway Across the Rainbow', and another single left off it. Now their short-lived career is documented in this discography overview, courtesy of Captured Tracks.

Medicine
Home Everywhere

Medicine make songs and then sabotage them until they're buried under a dusty pile of rocks, taking after the Perfect Pussy punx with the whole mission statement of "write pop, fuck it up later". Unlike the fuzz of their peers, 'Home Everywhere' has little interest in nostalgia, making the noise the main attraction and the tune under it a secondary affair -- it's kind of like listening to Magik Markers with shiny structures underneath.

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. Commencing their breakout 2012 debut ‘The Feeling’, Naomi Punk return to the fold with their sophomore record ‘Television Man’, their first for Captured Tracks. Key fixtures in the Northwest DIY punk scene, Naomi Punk channel a similar energy to their contemporaries (Milk Music, Broken Water, Vexx, Gag) and their fore bearers (Wipers, Dead Moon, Nirvana) while cultivating a body of work and aesthetic that is wholly their own.
