Alex Bleeker and The Freaks
Country Agenda

Another warm collection of country-tinged tunes from the every-improving Alex Bleeker & The Freaks. As bass player in Real Estate Bleeker knows a thing or two about intelligent songwriting - proven further here with Country Agenda - a passionate yet understated album. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Sinderlyn.

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 Captured Tracks.

Blouse
Imperium

Blouse have made an uncommon move on this, their second for Captured Tracks. Dreamy shoegazers are more commonly found adding layers of synths, electronics, and drum machines as they go on - on Imperium these guys have stripped all that away. Makes for a more rockin' take on their sound over the course of a double LP.

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.

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 it all. CD or LP, released on the Captured Tracks label.

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.

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.

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.

Cleaners From Venus
Extra Wages


Cults
Offering

Cults  - yes they did spell their name correctly - have returned with their second effort and according to the press release are now working in technicolour rather than their previous black and white. It says these songs are bursting with melody and invention using new song structures and buzzing synths to forge their brave new world. 

Cymbals Eat Guitars
Pretty Years

Pressed so loud that I literally jumped out of my skin when it started playing, this is the latest album from the formerly interesting indie rockers continues their run towards mainstream rock with belched, vomited vocals over friendly indie rock guitars and synths that don't get let you think too hard. Strangely Springsteen - perhaps this ambitious album could set them free?  

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 Captured Tracks label.

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 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.

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.

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, presenting twelve solid songs. On Captured Tracks.

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. 

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.

HOMESHAKE
Midnight Snack

Homeshake a.k.a Peter Sagar follows his 2014 debut with Midnight Snack, a distinctly R&B tinged collection of synthesizer jams. After leaving the Mac DeMarco touring band it’s clear that Sagar has had time to reflect and express some of his post-tour comedown anxieties in this record. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Sinderlyn.

HOMESHAKE
In The Shower

This was the first “proper” full-length album release from HOMESHAKE, following a smattering of fine cassettes, initially issued in 2014. Weirdly-tinged bedroom indie-R&B is the name of the game, with main man Peter Sagar slinking around his songs like someone with love on his mind. In The Shower is out on Sinderlyn / Captured Tracks.

Homeshake
Fresh Air

Homeshake is a chill guy. As chill as you imagine someone might be who escaped the presumed nightmare of being in Mac De Marco's backing band. He now makes laid back home made lo-fi soul seemingly made on the cheapest keyboards ever but it reminds us of relaxing on a summers day so all is good. Slinky and warm this should sound nice when the sun shines. 

Jaye Bartell
In A Time Of Trouble, A Wild Exultation

A mature-feeling selection from Jaye Bartell. Third album In A Time Of Trouble, A Wild Exaltation was recorded in live sessions in Bartell’s home town, with pleasant details like chimes in an open window adding to the crystal-clear band recordings. Features Ahleuchatistas and Angel Olsen on guest spots. Out on Sinderlyn.

Jaye Bartell
Loyalty

Jaye Bartell is a singer/songwriter and poet who originates from Massachusetts. A transient figure, he began work on his new album, Loyalty after moving to Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Loyalty is a dark and brooding gothic folk work, the music being the perfect backdrop for his rich, full toned voice and expressive lyrics.

Jaye Bartell
Light Enough

Light Enough is a New York record, composed and conceived of in Jaye Bartell’s Brooklyn apartment in the year following his moving there. As an active poet, Bartell has a pretty potent lyrical insight, with these intimate songs addressing heavy subjects including dementia. Still though, they sound Light Enough. On Sinderlyn / Captured Tracks.

Juan Wauters
N.A.P. North American Poetry


  • CD (CT190CD)

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.

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.

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
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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Novella
Land

Novella, of sunny Brighton, are devoted '60s counterculture fans, and they aren’t afraid to display that in their music. Land is their debut album, and it brings together the two opposing ends of that sphere of influence: the acid-blasted riffing and the blissed psychedelic pop. Arrives neatly in the present day via the likes of Stereolab and Broadcast, Land is released by Sinderlyn and Captured Tracks.

Novella
Change of State

London based Novella provide a soul warming slab of indie rock with a psychedelic tinge. Returning to Sinderlyn with a follow up album to their debut Land, Change Of State is a reflection on returning from touring to a very different Britain, politically and socially. Stripping back to bare basics by recording straight to 8-track with James Hoare  of Veronica Falls adds an exposed charm.

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 drone, noise and experimental dream pop. 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

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. 

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.

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.

The Fresh & Onlys
Wolf Lie Down

The latest chapter in the ongoing sound world of the Fresh and Only's took them three years to complete but continues the anything goes art punk/ technicolour garage pop of their previous five full length releases. The band is nothing if not multi faceted and here take you on a journey through jangle pop, desert rock and primitive rock and roll. 

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.

The Soft Moon
Deeper Remixed Vol. 1

Harsh, dizzying and wonderful EBM-techno hybrids from an assortment of remixers let loose on The Soft Moon’s Deeper. Deeper Remixed Volume 1, on vinyl 12”, blends cold wave synths, distorted drum machines and Cocteau Twins textures as Ancient Methods, Phase Fatale, Blush Response and Codex Empire do their worst to the post-punk originals.

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.  

Tim Cohen
Tim Cohen's Magic Tricks


  • CD (CT91CD)

Tim Cohen
Luck Man

Tim Cohen, who you might know from The Fresh & Only’s or from Magic Trick, strikes out with a solo record. Luck Man is filled with songs that are apparently Tim’s way of filling an existential void, meaning that we get to go nice and deep with him. Not that these are bleak numbers: these are subtle songs. Released by Sinderlyn.

Walter TV
Blessed

Walter TV are contemporary nomads of Canadian basement origins. ‘Blessed’ was recorded and mixed between the bands shared apartment in Montreal, LA and on tour (whilst members Joe and Pierce were away touring with Mac DeMarco). It’s DIY surf metal, with punk sensibilities and an obvious soft spot for heavy metal shredding.

Walter TV
Carpe Diem

These indie warblers made a mini-shambles with their excellent record record Blessed, so it's to the good that Walter TV are back to make another dream-sequence ruckus. Veering slightly more towards a professional production than past endeavours, they continue to pack hooks in a sound that paraphrases the indie lexicon in corners containing Modest Mouse and the Figurines.

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.

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.
