Capiroto Records released Fault Lines, the second release by Marek Kubala, from Huddersfield and now based in east London. Fault Lines sees Marek ditch his signature classical guitar and downtempo moods and deliver an infectious slice of punky indie-pop, with touches of Courtney Bartnett, Whitey, The B-52s, and Nirvana, including quirky electronics and a chorus that will bounce round your head for days. A powerful song which carries a lot of Marek’s personality, characterised by his style of singing and producing. Fault Lines follows Marek’s debut Awhile EP which featured on BBC Introducing – a more acoustic and downtempo electronic work yet one thing they share is Marek’s songwriting and voice. The single also contains a remix by a London electro-indie project called Naives, which is highly percussive with a tight bass groove.
Capiroto Records announces Toxic Earth by Mike Byrd, producer from Manchester. Toxic Earth is a puissant deep house that does justice to its name when it comes to sound design. After its first part, it proves out being not that toxic as it initially seemed, but a beautiful dance track with an excellent groove in the bass, catchy melody, well worked chord progressions and a short vocal session. The chords posses that typical lush texture of deep house. Moreover, Mike fills the track with unique parts in the arrangement, that makes Toxic Earth not the average deep house track.

Official release 23rd of August in all the stores.
Capiroto Records released today Get Down, a new single by Swedish artist Nathanael Saposnikoff, one year after his debut EP1. Get Down is a sweet song, retro-stained, with instruments like mellotrone, chorus driven guitars, filter sweeping synthezisers, saxophones and falsetto vocals. With a big influence of lo-fi indie music. It’s lush and uplifiting in all the senses and it’s a must if you enjoy the new alternative scene.
Released 12th of July by Capiroto Records Sons of Venus, album by the homonimous band from New York City in United States. The band was formed when John Sully, performer and sound engineer, met Kazakh drummer and pianist Ruslan Baimurzin, who invited him for a jam with bassist Igor Reznik and keyboardist Peter Breed. Thinking It Through comes as their debut single before their upcoming seven tracks album. Their album is a result from extensive improvisations, who were later transformed by Sully into demo tracks, on which he overdubbed the vocals. Excited by the outcome, the band decided to record a seven tracks album at Bunker Studios in Brooklyn. The album was recorded in one day and mixed by Sully in his home studio. According to them: “There is an innate 1960’s feeling to the album. Free jazz flourishes and acid rock edges intertwine with an indie pop ethos. Taking their cues from punk, funk and the blues, the band appreciates as it innovates.”
Capiroto Records is happy to announce No Escape From Time, by Groove Plexus, a Galen Bundy project, composer and producer from Michigan, USA. No Escape From Time comes out as two tracks single, the first No Escape From Time and the second Chorduroys. No Escape From Time has vocals, jazzy instruments with a big influence of downtempo electronic music, according to Galen, “No Escape From Time is describing the journey from a place of tension into a state of acceptance. It serves me as an understanding of having made those realizations”. The track features the vocals of Detroit based vocalist Alex Koi. The second track, Chorduroys, is about “finding a serene place and settling there for a while. It’s meant to describe moments of contemplation in casual settings, like taking a walk in nature or driving to work”.
Capiroto Records is announcing Eventual, a new alternative rock single by Molt, composer based in California, USA. The single contains three tracks that express his feelings towards loss, of a girlfriend, of a friend, which makes them full of feelings, that are clearly expressed in the harmony of Eventual and in the distorted guitars of Hollows. Doorway has a connection to post-punk, especially its intro, with strong synthesized sounds.
Official release 5th of July 2019.
Capiroto Records is glad to announce A Day of Night, by A Daydream Person, artist name of Adrian Seo, producer from Seoul, South-Korea. It is a downtempo/nu-disco composition divided in two parts that complement each other, Matinee and Soiree, which is a direct reference to its title, day and night. Both tracks are contain field recordings in its beginning and end. Overall it’s a delicate song, with a big presence of keys, playing chords as if they are part of the rhythm, followed by a woman’s voice whispering words in English as vocals (matinee), which is later summed by synthesizers, bringing it a housy and nu-disco touch (highlighted in soiree), which is supported by its rhythm, with patterns of kicks and claps. The song ends as delicate as it has started. Soiree, as the name suggests, is a more nocturnal version, a bit longer than it’s counterpart.

Released on 22nd of February, I Was Wrong, by Canadian DJ and producer Cozmic Cat is back as a music video on Capiroto Record’s YouTube page and on 21st of June as a remix by LPascolatti, who was also responsible for mastering I Was Wrong.
The plan was to make it sound fatter, more atmospheric, while enhancing the synthesizers and adding some saturation to the drums. Making it sound more minimalist, as a few elements were removed while some others were highlighted, such as the vocal’s presence, for example.

Capiroto Records released on 24th of May The State of Things Less Embraced, debut EP of downtempo doom & black metal influenced band Wither Without You, from Alabama, USA. They were established on the first day of 2019, by Matt and Colton. According to Matt, they aimed for:
“Uplifting and brightened breaks in between. But still giving raw texture, heavy riffs and solid drums to back up the very Metal Core infused vocals layered on top. Giving us, or what we called, our “Doom-Core” Genre’d content. Dedicated to our passion of metal we have added another guitarist, Mathew, and a bassist Eric, who both play significant roles in Wither Without You. Giving us a very widespread concept of our metal background and abilities as a whole. Leading to our current/future content for everyone to take a piece with them to hold onto and enjoy.”
