Brooklyn-based label and record shop Captured Tracks teamed with legendary New Zealand label Flying Nun Records back in January 2013. We are now distributing these awesome releases!
Since 2009, Captured Tracks has been putting out great new indie rock/pop and post-punk (such as Mac DeMarco, DIIV, Beach Fossils, and Blouse) and reissues (Medicine, For Against). Meanwhile, Flying Nun has been helming the postpunk scene from Chrischurch, New Zealand since ’81, putting out the likes of The Clean, Chris Knox and The Dead C.
Captured Tracks’ founder/operater Mike Sniper is quoted as saying:
We at Captured Tracks are beyond ecstatic to work with Flying Nun Records for this series of reissues. As a young record collector, I always saw the label as a recommendation of¬†quality and a constant source of inspiration. I would comb the shelves of every record store imaginable to secure anything and everything I could find. When I first heard the news that they’d bought back the rights, this partnership was something that was lingering in the back of my mind. I’m more than pleased that we can have any sort of involvement in revitalizing this amazing back catalog and returning it to record shelves the world over.
The partnership’s first reissue, Toy Love was released in February 2013.
