Today was a Day for "Rising Mountains" by Capsula (2009)
Capsula, originally from Buenos Aires, now hails from Bilbao, Spain. They have been around for about 10 years, releasing a number of albums that cross all sorts of genre boundaries. Last year's album Rising Mountain kicks out the jams, mofo. This is a band that creates their own unique sound after they had seemingly been locked in a basement for some months with records by the Velvet Underground, Love & Rockets, The Stooges, PJ Harvey, Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Sonic Youth. Word on the street is that they tore it up again at SXSW this year.
Here they are on the KEXP stage from SXSW a few weeks back:
Here is the official vid for track #1 "Sun Shaking":
