BOATS!: Totally Jawsome: LP

Dec 28, 2010

Sounds like a mashup of the Clorox Girls, who are boys, and the Busy Signals, who are partially girls, high on some type of mild crack made from Buzzcocks b-sides, because they secretly get off on the minor chords more than the major fifths and harmonies. I don’t know that any one song of the dozen here is exceptional, but these guys are definitely better than other bands who sound like a mashup of those bands getting high on those b-sides, so good on ‘em. I think they’re the only band on MySpace™ these days, so, obviously, their superstardom is all but assured. BEST SONG: “A Why” BEST SONG TITLE: “Porno?” “Oprah?” I’m dyin’ here! FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: If you think about it, the record cover looks kinda like the flag of Finland.
