Captured Tracks logo

Captured Tracks is a Brooklyn-based label founded and operated by Mike Sniper, the man also known (musically) as Blank Dogs. Technically, the label was begun in late 2008 with the release of Blank Dogs’ Captured Tracks Volume One CD-R, but it only truly kicked into gear in 2009 (indeed, within the first 9 months alone, Captured Tracks put out nearly 25 releases). Sniper also runs the power-pop reissue label Radio Heartbeat, and Captured Tracks’ primary base of operations is Brooklyn’s Academy Annex record shop, also home to kin-label Sacred Bones (as well as Academy’s own reissue label, Academy LPs). Sniper has stated that Captured Tracks releases are to remain in print, with both singles and 12-inches getting first pressings of at least 1000, and represses as needed. Only the cassette releases are considered “limited-edition” items.
