Captured Tracks
photo by Bill Pearis for BrooklynVegan Instagram

Still underway as I type this, the two-day Captured Tracks Festival happening this Labor Day Weekend at The Well in Bushwick featured a very special set on Sunday by a label supergroup dubbed Shitfather, featuring Cole Smith (Diiv), Dustin Payseur (Beach Fossils), Jack Tatum (Wild Nothing) and Mac DeMarco. That's them pictured above.

They did two songs by Cleaners from Venus ("Only a Shadow" and "Victoria Grey") whose records have been reissued on CT, brought out a couple of the Craft Spells guys for two of their songs, covered The Wake's "Pale Spectre" (with Cole dressed in drag as Charli from Blouse) and then did two Blank Dogs songs ("Setting Fire to Your House," "Tin Birds").

More about the whole fest later, but you can check out video of "Pale Spectre" and "Tin Birds" from Sunday, plus one of Mac DeMarco playing "Rock and Roll Nightclub" on Saturday at the Well (the first day of the fest), below...

10:38 is either Mac Demarco or upset there's no more hummus.

what a lame super group. glad to see captured tracks kept it a boys club even when some of their best releases feature female artists.

this show sounds like a standing fart pit

Never heard of any of these dudes... Ok.. maybe the DIIV guy.

Must be a supergroup.

Mac Demarco is a good dude to drink beer and have hummus with.

Sniper undoubtedly has good taste, but CT current crop leaves a lot to be desired. This bill definitely needed a genuine headliner/surprised/classic act. Medicine, Cleaners, FN band or even a solid Blank Dogs show would've done the trick. If you paid $30 for a day of this you got hosed.

Not bad actually.

Supergroup or stupidgroup?

Why does anyone like this label's boring bullshit

"They did two songs by Cleaners from Venus ("Only a Shadow" and "Victoria Grey") whose records have been reissued on CT, brought out a couple of the Craft Spells guys for two of their songs, covered The Wake's "Pale Spectre" (with Cole dressed in drag as Charli from Blouse) and then did two Blank Dogs songs ("Setting Fire to Your House," "Tin Birds")."

I seriously understood not one word of this.

I was really disappointed that Grimes wasn't part of the super group.

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2013 5:01 PM

^agreed. Actually w/o Grimes it's really more of a 'group' than a 'super group'

Remember anti Semites that Jews re signing your checks and evicting you and your many disgusting hipster roommates who can barely pay rent in between strumming guitars and blowing random dudes high on that molly

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2013 5:29 PM

Being an antisemite is unwise cause you could be 1/10000 that make it big, and need a jewish accountant like Liberace.

I heard that Diplo, Tiesto, & Avicii had a superset during electric zoo. It consisisted of the different tunes from them playing tetris on their laptops.

Jew haters will always are as intelligent as a 8 year old Down syndrome child. We run everything and you aren't intelligent enough to know it. Keep buying our hummus in between your band sets. Thank you for staying as far away from a collegiate education and paying rent In bushwick. Dodos!!!

Um, DIIV is not big enough for this band to be called a "supergroup".

For mega-hipster points, which Bushwick bar's men's room features the tag "Captured Tracks = Easy Listening"?

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2013 9:43 PM

I haven't hung out at enough bushwick bars to know that. I'm aways at the warehouse parties, but what's the name of the all you can touch strip club there?

Wreck room 9:43pm. Got blown by a fat Asian chick there on Thursday

easy listening > whatever "edgy" drone/noise/speed death metal garbage the hip are into.

Wow, some of these comments are the most idiotic I have ever read. Evidently are the lamestreamers that don't know what they are babbling about. Xoxo Jack Mac Dustin Zachary.
