Captain Samurai – “Can’t Wait”

captain samurai waitThe members of Captain Samurai are readying their debut LP, Hey Thanks Goodbye, (on the always excellent 80N7) for sometime in November, with “Tired” being its first single. Their latest single “Can’t Wait” exposes the trio’s pop-mindedness, with guitarist/vocalist, Amador, trudging through heavy memories in an Oberst-ian quiver to open the track. The track’s sprawling folk opening quickly upheaves into a crushing fuzz-pop jam that hinge on angst and longing. The chorus explodes with Amador’s creaky vocals cranking out anguished yelps of “I can’t wait,” which are only to be swallowed by fluffy synth ripples and tight grooves from gruff guitars and drums. Guys, I can’t wait for this record.
