  • Bootblacks "s/t" Lp

    Not only can you find the brand new "Narrowed" cassette from Bootblacks released by modern tapes, you can also find the debut full length (fall 2012) from this brooklyn quartet. Dark post-punk with some synths for flavor and a recurring thread of badassery. Silkscreened covers, includes a patch and download card. great stuff. I like them so much i put out a tape for them.
