Black Heel Marks return from never having been away with their debut long play recording, Feel Free, out June 25, 2013.
Feel Free - thirteen songs clang and gyrate in the uncomfortable brackish of electrified digital rock and roll, petulant synthesizer nag and calculated superstardom.
Feel Free was produced and directed by Don Pyle (The Filthy Gaze of Europe / Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet), with electrified guitars by Wilmer Henderson III (Girl Trouble), Jonny Dovercourt (Republic of Safety), Dallas Good (The Filthy Gaze of Europe / The Sadies), Sandro Perri (Polmo Polpo), Kevan Byrne (King Cobb Steelie) and Dave Evans (Soupcans). Kevin Lynn (King Cobb Steelie / Minotaurs) and Patti Schmidt (Nanobot Auxiliary Ballet) play electrified bass. Patti also sings, as does KP Kendall (Girl Trouble), and Alanna Stuart (Bonjay). Tony Malone (Drastic Measures) plays some keyboards and DP lashes out with synthesizers, drums and other appurtenances.
The CD is encased in a mini-LP style jacket with gatefold and paper inner sleeve. Cover art of Feel Free features cfaal 113 by Jessica Eaton, from her photo series Cubes for Albers and LeWitt. Derek von Essen designed the package, and mastering was done by Peter J Moore.
