Even as it feels like rock 'n' roll is losing too many of its heroes lately, we should also remember those who continue to carry the flame. Among them, KEXP favorites Capsula, who exalt the rock gods of yore with a fiery passion. On eight kinetic LPs, plus a handful of collaborations, compilations and live recordings, the Spanish based, Argentinian bred group, led by Martin Guevara and Coni Duchess, have stoked a reverent - and suitably irreverent - love for all things garage, glam, and psychedelic. This week, they're about to release their latest album, Santa Rosa, and on it a song KEXP listeners might remember from a session they recorded a year ago in our studio, "Candle Candle", a searing rocker that burns doubly bright, like its title. Watch this exclusive premiere of their video for "Candle Candle" now and pick up Santa Rosa this Friday, April 29th, when it's released on French label Vicious Circle.
