Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Afternoon Show host Kevin Cole, is “Found and Lost” by Capsula from their 2009 album Rising Mountains on BCore Records.

Capsula - Found and Lost (MP3)

If you’ve never heard of Capsula, don’t be too worried. Originally from Buenos Aires and transplanted to Bilbao, Spain, Capsula have to be one of the hardest working rock bands in Spanish history. In fact, if you had to compare them to anyone, they just might be the Spanish equivalent of The Stooges (an obvious influence of the band). While the American garage band label definitely fits them, the killer bass lines and jangly guitars sound like something you would hear in London, not Northern Spain. Nonetheless, the hard hitting trio are now on a great independent punk label, BCore, and have started turning heads here in the U.S. Their new album, Rising Mountains, is solid from top to bottom and features some really futuristic ethereal garage punk, and “Found and Lost” is the perfect song to introduce you to their sound.

Currently, Capsula has only a handful of dates remaining at the end of their European tour. Hopefully, though, you won’t have to wait until next SXSW for them to return to the States. For now, you can read more about the band on their website, listen to additional tracks on their MySpace page, and check out their new video for “Sun Shaking,” another great song on the new album:

    She kind of looks like Kim Gordon.
