Part Time Punks
The first handful of MINKS singles were released amidst Captured Tracks' first wave of dreampop in 2010, alongside labelmates, Beach Fossils, Wild Nothing, Craft Spells and Catwalk, with their near-perfect debut LP released shortly after in 2011. (All of which have received heavy airplay on the PTP radio show since their release.) Their new LP, "Tides End" finds the band fusing dreampop with electropop textures, at times channeling early Depeche Mode, or at other, Denim (aka Lawrence's post-Felt fusing of pop and electro). And on every track, singer/songwriter Sonny Kilfoyle's vocals are lovelier than ever. This is MINKS first-ever headlining show on the West Coast, and his appearance at PTP has been in the planning stages for something like 3 years now, so don't miss this rare opportunity to (finally) see the band live!
Catwalk [Captured Tracks]
CATWALK's debut LP is finally nearly complete, and looks to drop on Captured Tracks this fall... (The dreamier side of MBV meets The Wake and Wild Nothing and Beach Fossils...) And if you thought the debuts by Beach Fossils and Wild Nothing debut LPs were good, just wait til you hear Catwalk's! The band have promised to unveil more new songs tonite, so you're in for a real treat...because the live show is just as good as the recordings!
Ariel Pink meets Fad Gadget meets Ziggy Stardust meets Genesis P-Orridge making lo-fi darkwave dreampop post-psychedelia occult-style shoegaze on cassettes (in his bedroom). This is DRAB MAJESTY. Behold, thee Majesty, and not drab at all.
