BOAT, Towering Trees and The Woodcuts

Hooray for BOAT! Over the course of five friendly albums, the Seattle band has become near and dear, making catchy, goofy, fun rock songs that have burrowed into our affections like litters of warm, wriggly puppies. BOAT's newest album, the marvelous Pretend to Be Brave, is perhaps their most realized and least silly to date, with songs about getting older, becoming a responsible adult, and embracing all the best things about not being a kid anymore. (Beer! Friends! Dogs! Eating nachos whenever you want!) The simple pleasures that BOAT espouses apply to their music as well—unlike a lot of current-day pop or rock songs, it's not boastful or angry or forlorn. It's nice music made by nice dudes. Pass the nachos. NED LANNAMANN
