‘Time Capsules‘ is a song of longing and regret – there’s the helplessness of leaving things undone “I wish I had done the things I’d planned on before they were lost far away” sings Mayteana Morales…but it’s all too late “those times are gone…long gone…because I didn’t say what I meant.”
It’s a song with a timeless sound, crafted by singer/songwriter Jon LaDeau – best known as guitarist with The National Reserve – and vocalist Mayteana Morales formerly of soul band Pimps of Joytime with the able assistance of Daptone stalwart Sam Merrick on drums and bassist Justin Kimmel (Antibalas, Toubab Krewe). Mixing magic was added to ‘Time Capsules’ by Jesse Lauter who has previously worked with the likes of Stephen Stills, Langhorne Slim, and Elvis Perkins.
‘Time Capsules‘ is available everywhere from tomorrow, but you can hear it right now on Americana UK.
