A capstan shaft is apparently some mechanical part of a tape recorder, making The Capstan Shafts an appropriate name for a group whose music is obviously recorded at home, using bare-bones techniques.
The rough sound of The Capstan Shafts amplifies the level of mystery their songs already have, but it also amplifies the emotional impact in certain hard-to-pinpoint ways.
The overall tone of Capstan Shafts songs is intimate and heartbaring, but the lyrics entwine honest expressions of emotion (of regret, adoration, sadness, confusion) with surrealist imagery and humor.

Used for hauling ropes, it has the advantage that it can take ropes coming from any horizontal direction without the need for guiding blocks and other rope leading systems, provided that the rope is perpendicular to the capstan shaft and approximately on the same horizontal plane as the warping head.
It is also easy to slip a rope on a capstan, thus reducing the hauling speed, or just hold the rope to maintain a steady pull while the capstan is still in motion.
