“Bullet Proof Shoes.” Bright Dog Red's second release following 2015’s “Teasers,” features a single track, a 31-minute long extended improvisation, reminiscent of and inspired by BDR’s live sets.

Emerging Indie Bands writes:

"Extemporised psychedelic jazz-hop trickles through...Bullet Proof Shoes, a track that has a dark air about it reflective of the parlous state of social cohesion which exists throughout the globe, evoked visually by the release artwork of the unlaced footwear which stands as powerful an image as if they were depicted tied over hanging cables."

Music Blog Masked Faces writes:

"New York’s experimental outfit Bright Dog Red breathe life into their music, evolving with each subsequent sonic experiment… Get lost in Bright Dog Red’s latest offering, “Bullet Proof Shoes,” and revel in musical metamorphosis."
