Members: Larry, Pat, Mark and Chris Label: Hear Me Think DIY Bio Blurring the genre lines, Black Them Boots connects with their audiences through solid, playful melodies that play off the band's folk and rock inspirations. With witty lyrics and driven guitars, the band has a stage presence to be reckoned with and a sound that brings crowds to their feet. About BLACK THEM BOOTS is set to release their debut album “Fancy,” named after the band’s satirical take on the long overdue effort to capture its rough-cut sound on a quality recording. Playful melodies resonate the band’s folk and rock inspirations on all eleven tracks, while the album’s lyrics are best described as a fun take on life’s miseries. “Ignore the words and just listen to the beats and melodies and you’d be thinking something amazing and fun is happening,” said singer-songwriter Larry Corte. “But in reality, the whole record is this pathetic story of heartache, misfortune, and failure.” One of the best examples of the band’s upbeat sound paired with dark lyrics is the track “Dear Darling.” Sure to be the record’s first hit, the catchy “do-do” vocals replace a structured chorus and give the song a jingle-like sound fit for a sunny car commercial.

All the while, morose lyrics like, “Oh yeah that’s my heart on my sleeve, you stab, you jab, you poke at me” turn the track on its head. “Fancy” is an album that demands close attention. Just when the sound can be defined as indie rock infused with traces of folk and punk, a Mexican-style horn wails the intro to “Seven Miles of Copper,” forcing one to give it a fresh listen. The album ends with an upbeat take on Daniel Johnston’s “True Love Will Find You In The End,” putting a positive slant on a song previously interpreted as sad and pitiful. “What I don’t think people realize is that the song is hopeful.

It’s a positive thing, and that’s the sort of spin we tried to put on the entire album: to take a lonely and sad situation and make it, well, okay,” adds Larry. Producer Cameron Webb recorded the main tracks over a few days in late 2008 at Maple Sound Studios in Santa Ana, California. With a repertoire that includes bands like Social Distortion, Motörhead, and Silverstein, Cameron hailed Black Them Boots as “a male version of The Breeders,” and noted that the simultaneous tracking, along with minimal production and editing, gives “Fancy” the feel of a live recording “Cameron does more than place mics and run the board. He captures the performance,” said lead guitarist Pat Martin. Additional post-production work was completed in bassist Mark Waters’ home studio and Larry’s bedroom, with several trips back to Maple, passing the hard drive around like a bottle of Wild Turkey at a camp fire, until it was done. The album will be released in both digital and CD formats on April 29th. And for those vinyl lovers, a classic LP will be available early this summer.
