 Blank Dogs
Mike Sniper (aka Blank Dogs) never meant to be one of Brooklyn’s ‘most mysterious musicians’. Things just ended up that way, as the singer/multi-instrumentali
st released a steady stream of limited singles and EPs on such reputable indie labels as Sacred Bones, HoZac and Woodsist. Not to mention’s Sniper’s own Captured Tracks imprint—a carefully-curated roster that’s grown as quickly as Blank Dogs itself, thanks to such buzz-stirring releases as Dum Dum Girls’ debut EP and recent records by Beach Fossils, Wild Nothing and Minks.
Captured Tracks

The Soft Moon
Raised under the burning sun of the Mojave desert, Vasquez channels both his punk upbringing and Afro-Cuban heritage to sculpt decidedly dystopian soundscapes for a new generation of torn romantics. It’s a record set somewhere in the near post-apocalypse where technology enchants as much as it destroys.
Captured Tracks

Apse (pronounced /‘apps/) is a cadre of ghosts wailing into the cold New England wind. In recent years the group has channeled itself through ATP Recordings, reaching a larger audience so all can immerse themselves in its dark realms. Its sounds are heard on the tribal atmospheric swamp of Spirit, the drug-addled lo-fi montage Eras, or recently on Climb Up’s more rousing gesture toward the light. The group’s live performances – often known for their unmistakable dark intensity and shamanic conjurings – are not to be missed.

I’m personally psyched on this show.  I’m excited to see Apse for the first time in a while with their latest line-up and new songs.  I’m pretty stoked on The Soft Moon album so getting to see them right now is perfect.  And Blank Dogs too!  Psyched. – Rick
