7 New Captured Tracks Releases!
It appears as if Mike Sniper's prodigious output as Blank Dogs has rubbed off on his Captured Tracks label. After releasing his first two 12"s by The Dum Dum Girls and Blank Dogs, natch, just a few weeks backs, it appears as if the next 7 (!) releases are available to order. Right now you can order all 7 new releases for $78.00 in Canada and $65.00 in the US, both totals include shipping. Multi-pack orders will cut off at 200, so get in there while you still can. I don't normally go out of my way to announce every release from tiny labels, but Captured Tracks is coming on strong and there is not yet a whole lot of press on the label. Sign up at the Terminal Boredom forum for instant updates from Sniper himself. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get a hold of the action. Also check out his blogspot, where, in the coming days, he'll have installed some paypal buttons for ordering.
Don't have time to get into every release here, but these are the ones I'm juiced up on...
The Mayfair Set 7"
This group is actually a collaborative effort between the Dum Dum Girls and Blank Dogs. Check their myspace for some infectious gloomy jangle jams. This sounds as good as you think it would.
Gary War "Opens" cassette
Live cassette of this warbled-pop group should prove that last years "New Raytheonport" 12" was no fluke.
PS. Download his new Sacred Bones 7"for free from his site, listed above.
The Bitters "Wooden Glove" 12"
Very new group out of Toronto (first live show with Wavves at the end of March) who seem to be full of promise. I highly recommend peeping their track 'Warrior' on their myspace. Here's hoping they've included that track on this 12". They also have an upcoming release with another up-and-coming group outta' Toronto, Little Girls. That split cassette will be released by Drone Errant in the coming weeks...hopefully.
Also in this new batch is a 12" by Blessure Grave, a cassette by Repairs, a 7" by Woods, and another 7" by Brilliant Colors.
