The Capstan Shafts: Revelation Skirts
Buy! - (Rainbow Quartz)
Vermont’s Dean Wells has been making lo-fi home recordings under the name of The Capstan Shafts since 1999. This is the first album he’s recorded in a studio, and it’s a stunner, with one song after another of brilliantly crafted, hook-filled power pop combining crunchy rock guitars and bashing drums with clever, insightful lyrics and an abundance of killer melodies. 6/23/2010 - Don Yates
