      "Part Time Punks Sessions/Narrowed"

      Label: Icy Cold Records (2018)

      A very special release by the acclaimed Brooklyn-based Electro/Post Punk band: 11 tracks never before released in physical format! Comes in a gatefold digipak, with artwork by Barrett Hiatt, derived from ‘Fragments’ album art. – The CD containes 4 tracks of the ultra-rare Tape ‘Narrowed’ (2013, released in a limited editon of 100 copies only!), a cover of ‘Touch’ by the Scottish Electropop heroes SECESSION, the Exclusive ‘Captives’ and 5 classic tracks from their Albums ‘Fragments’ (2017), ‘Veins’ (2016) and aforementioned Tape, completely re- recorded with Josiah Mazzaschi in Los Angeles during special 'Part Time Punks Sessions'! Since the group’s founding in 2010, Brooklyn-based Bootblacks' sound has been described as a balance of contradictions: both pensive and buoyant, referential and modern. Fitting, as the Bootblacks name is derived from novelist William Burroughs’ description of the dark underbelly of glitzy New York City.
      Vocalist and frontman Panther MacDonald lists an eclectic set of influences: Depeche Mode, New Order, Simple Minds, Echo and the Bunnymen, Joy Division, early U2, as well as the Beatles and David Bowie for lyrical inspiration.
      Bootblacks released their first EP ‘Narrowed in 2013, recorded with Brian Scott Herman, after previously collaborating with Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds). Songwriters Mac Donald and Gorman describe the collaboration with Sclavunos as a “life-changing” one that informs Bootblacks’ music to this day.
