RVCA's welcome to surfer Ivy Thomas: Instrumental Boots with Tommy Larkins on percussion and tidy on synth... recorded at Waterworks West.

From the cassette tape wilds of downtown Tucson, Arizona: it's the Golden Boots!
Formed in 2002 by artists Ryen Eggleston and Dimitri Manos, Golden Boots’ music is a lo-fi and often ragged take on folk and pop rock. The duo has been joined by many contributors over the years, which has created a charismatic diversity in performances and recordings. The common thread among all Golden Boots’ output is their desire to playfully deconstruct American roots music with indie and punk-country spirit.

The newest Golden Boots album is called Liquid Ranch: 
"Liquid Ranch is a culmination of the lived-in Golden Boots aesthetic: a blending the late 80’s/90’s lo-fi movement and cassette culture with elements of 70’s country. Replete with with hooks, rough hewn harmonies, the songs of Liquid Ranch are set loose to lurch and ramble in a unique sonic landscape littered with the absurd & sometimes dark wreckage of the American Psyche."

Golden Boots has played in the USA, Mexico, France, Germany, UK and Belgium. Over the years they've shared the stage with such wonderful acts as: Television Personalities, The Chills, Calvin Johnson, Jeffery Lewis, Dirty Projectors, Little Wings, Cat Power, Magnolia Electric Co., The Microphones, LAKE, John Doe, Giant Sand, Poster Children, Greg Turner and Dr. Dog

In other people's words: 

"...appealing, low-fi indie rock that's been baked in the Southwest sun... overflowing with ramshackle charm" - Brooklyn Vegan

"There's stuff out there that not all eyes and radar detect. We have the Golden Boots for those very delicate needs." - Paste Magazine

"There’s an overused quote about Lambchop that calls them “Nashville’s most fucked-up country band”. Replace Nashville with Tucson, Arizona and you’ve got a working starting point for Golden Boots..." - Rosy Overdrive

"Southwesterners come off like spaced-out cowboys, lassoing bleeps and bloops and riding off on country deconstruction into some warped sunset" - Pop Matters

"With a sound that would fit well on a mixtape containing Alex Chilton, The Clean, Beck, Flying Burrito Brothers, The Meat Puppets, early Flaming Lips and the Monkees, Golden Boots have released a respected body of work" - It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine

"shades of psychedelia...shot through with a dose of desert-fried country a la the Meat Puppets or Giant Sand." - Tucson Weekly

"lo-fi, shabby-chic, alt-country group...that sounds like Wilco stripped of the polish." - Williamette Weekly

"Golden Boots have an edgy feel, like Beck meets Tom Waits. The songs exude a raw sense of natural discovery evident both in the vocals and instrumentation. It's Impossible to describe the fantasy that animates their composition, arrangements and singing." - Abus Dangerouex Magazine

"Golden Boots...of the Brian Wilson Orchestral school of pop mutations and...the Beatles symphonic drug experiment." - Stranded In Stereo
