Founded in 2008, and named as the result of confusion around the title of the first Blank Dogs EP (fronted by founder Mike Sniper), Captured Tracks has grown into an unwavering Brooklyn institution of independent music.
What followed was a decade of revered releases from a roster that defined the label. Artists such as Wild Nothing, The Soft Moon, Beach Fossils, Mac DeMarco, DIIV, Craft Spells and more, all began their creative careers at the label and established a foundation both culturally and professionally for the second generation of new signings, including Chastity, B Boys, Lina Tullgren, Molly Burch, Drahla and Mourn.
With an ever-present ethos of building something from nothing, Captured Tracks has dedicated its output to championing new artists and bands with little-to-no official prior releases but an undeniable talent that inspires Mike and the team in the same way as the artists before them.
In their tenth year of existence, the label celebrates it’s 300+ releases to date and looks to the still-growing roster’s future ahead.
