When I grow up I wanna be

This is a fun album, my friends… Grabbed BOAT’s new album, Let’s Drag Our Feet because I think I read something about them somewhere (why not, right?) and I’m glad I did. I think H. Fozzelberry put it best when he said that “it is an album of homemade anthems”, an oddly apt phrase. It kinda reminds me of Islands in a way, and that’s a good thing, but these guys are definitely doing their own thing. Each song is it’s own beast, a few dipping into short asides (like today’s featured track) guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

God… why would anyone ever want to “grow up”?
