Veronica Falls
Veronica Falls
Veronica Falls are based in London, UK and feature members from the now defunct bands The Royal We and Sexy Kids. After touring extensively in 2009 their first single was released through Captured Tracks in the U.S. Veronica Falls' first British releases are due in the first quarter of 2010. The band consists of Roxanne Clifford (vocals, guitar), James Hoare (guitar), Marion Herbain (bass) and Patrick Doyle (drums).
Cold Showers
Cold Showers
Cold Showers, a band formed in Highland Park, Calif. In 2010, fuses the brash power of the shoegazers with the smoky compulsions of the no-wavers—Cold Showers would fit as well on Projekt Records as they would on Factory or Captured Tracks, if only for an industrial subtlety in terms of electronics and acoustics. A piston-precision rhythm section drives all these loud, crafty pop songs. This is the pervasive pop mode against which Cold Showers cast themselves, but they aren’t fired in steel to the darkside. Founding members Jonathan Weinberg, Jessie Clavin, Brian Davila, Renee Adams and Chris King, added since, have a lumbering, sometimes terrifying beast of a band—we’d be remiss not to follow its caustic, addictive trek.
Juan Wauters
Juan Wauters
In 2000, Alberto Wauters left Uruguay to live in a basement in Queens. Two years later he called his son, Juan, to join him. Juan Wauters crossed the threshold into manhood when he arrived in New York. Working at a factory, the father and son pooled their money to bring their family to the borough of opportunity. With no friends to speak of, Juan turned to music to take control of the loneliness of his isolation. Juan was inspired by his new neighborhood of Jackson Heights and delighted to find that his library card gave him access to an abundance of new music. In his debut solo record, N.A.P. North American Poetry, Wauters dreams big; coming into his own as a singer. Building on his songwriting, popularized by The Beets, Juan presents introspective tracks, like Water and Sanity, and reflections on humans’ relationship with technology in songs like Breathing—which features Carmelle Safdie. The record is completed, as always, by the artwork of dear friend and longtime collaborator Matthew Volz, who has honed the trademark visual aesthetic of Juan’s music. This album is a selection of recordings made between the fall of 2010 and the summer of 2012 at Marlborough Farms. N.A.P. delivers a fresh sound and lyrical candor from one of Queens’ most idiosyncratic adoptive sons. Live, Juan shares the stage with a revolving cast of international musicians of the highest caliber: vocalist Carmelle Safdie (Israel), multi-instrumentalist Tall Juan Zaballa (Argentina), percussionist Chie Mori (Japan), and flutist Amanda Rodi (Mexico). Matthew Volz heightens this lively and mood-altering experience with his painted banners, personal objects and manually manipulated light show. The ensemble is not to be missed. - See more at: http://capturedtracks.com/artists/juan-wauters/#sthash.s2T0776V.dpuf
