It’s safe to say that the people at Manic Depression might have struck gold with their newest signing, the Brooklyn based synth/post punk trio Bootblacks. Out soon on vinyl is their debut album “Veins” for the French label (you can order it here) and all we can say is WOOOOOOOOW! Forget the Editors and related acts, this is most probably the act you should focus on right now.
Not that the group is all that new, they were actually founded in 2010 and already released their first EP, “Narrowed”, in the fall of 2012. They also recorded with Brian Scott Herman, after previously collaborating with Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds). Bootblack are currently touring Europe (Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia…)
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
