Since their stunning 2009 album, Rising Mountains, we’ve been fans of Spanish band Capsula and were lucky enough to bring them to Seattle earlier this month for the 9th Annual KEXP BBQ. The trio, who originally hail from Argentina, throw together a blend of psychedelic rock ‘n roll that recalls at times Iggy & the Stooges, Sonic Youth, David Bowie and The Velvet Underground. Whatever their influences or whoever they remind you of, Capsula is a group that just loves to rock out, and their explosive live shows remind you of why you loved rock ‘n roll to begin with. Right off the plane from Europe, the band stopped by KEXP (before even heading to their hotel!) to perform live on the Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole. Check out their set below, and watch video from their KEXP BBQ performance here.
