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. ...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 revolv...view item »

Wild Nothing
Gemini

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
2

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 »

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, Pis...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 »

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&rsquo...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

‘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 »

Minks
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 »

Mac DeMarco
Rock And Roll Night Club

Firstly get the boy some make up lessons. What a state he's got himself in on the sleeve of his debut 12”. Titles like 'Rock and Roll Night Club' and 'Baby's Wearing Blue Jeans' suggest some kind of '70s denim nightmare but this is really good. He sounds like the re-incarnation o...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 »

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...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
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 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 »

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...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 »

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, vagu...view item »

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, Brainst...view item »

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 th...view item »

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. ...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 »

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&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 »

Chris Cohen
Overgrown Path

Cohen is, according to the press release, “the child of a former music business executive and a former Broadway actress”. Nice genes if you can get ‘em. ‘Overgrown Path’ reaches into my ears with slimy exploratory tendrils ...view item »

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...view item »

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' ...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?). They might recall fellow New Yorkers Parquet Courts to some ears: they certainly have the energy and the chops for it. No Worry No Mind is out on C...view item »

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 thes...view item »

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 ...view item »

DIIV
Is The Is Are

DIIV have produced a whole 17 songs for their hard-to-say-out-loud second album Is The Is Are. Zachary Cole Smith (formerly a Darwin Deez associate) has led his band into the fruitful territory of melodic shoegaze-tinged dream pop, which they perform with aplomb. CD or double LP on the ...view item »

EZTV
Calling Out

EZTV is songwriter Ezra Tenenbaum teamed up with the rhythm section of Shane O’Connell and Michael Stasiak, forming a power trio to make Ezra’s masses of demoed songs into fully-fledged band reality. Calling Out is the group’s debut, p...view item »

Charlie Hilton
Palana

Charlie Hilton has spun off from her band Blouse for this debut solo record. Palana, produced with the help of Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra), is a shiny array of tuneful psychedelic pop, Hilton’s cool, stately vocals in the centre of i...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »

Dinner
Three EPs, 2012-2014

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 t...view item »

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. The Past We Leave Behind is a warm, melodic electronic record with elements of...view item »

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 rom...view item »

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...view item »

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 vibrati...view item »

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...view item »

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....view item »

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 yo...view item »

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 an...view item »

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 second...view item »

Saada 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 »

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&rs...view item »

Donovan Blanc
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 »

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
Nausea

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 »

Juan Wauters
N.A.P. North American Poetry

I went dog-eared into the cinema yesterday to watch ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’. Two hours of unrelentingly bleak Coen Brothers brilliance which exemplifies the struggles of the solo singer songwriter troubadour, as true today as it was in the ‘60’s in which it was set. The conclusion being  - if you aren’t ...view item »
