Winnipeg, Manitoba's Boats—not to be confused with Sacramento's Boats! or the much beloved BOAT from Seattle—have a new album out on Kill Rock Stars. A Fairway Full of Miners, their third effort, is a giddy, goofy treat, full of catchy tunes that might play dumb but are smarter than they look. Songs like "Great Skulls" work as manic party jams, but betray hidden depths. Not that this fun-loving bunch could ever sound melancholy. They actually could share a bill with the Seattle band BOAT—these Canucks have a similar sense of goofiness and balls-out fun in the face of everyday reality. Considering that BOAT is one of my all-time favorite bands, that's saying a lot. NED LANNAMANN
