I first played The Capsules back in 2008 when I had Big Sonic Heaven on Indie 103.1 here in L.A. I wasn’t even sure if they were still together since we haven’t heard from them since their 2009 release of Long Distance Dedication. Apparently they are because they just released their latest album, Northern Lights And Southern Skies, this past January. The band has been together since 2002 and is a trio out of Kansas consisting of Julie Shields (Guitar, Vocals, Piano), Jason Shields (Bass, Loops) and Kevin Trevino (Drums). The direction is a little heavier on synths and keyboards this time around while showing some grit vs. their previous releases… and it works! Take a gander at this dreamy band and their latest album here and check out the video for “Across The Sky”, one of my faves, below.
