All aboard

Fresh off a fully delightful album release party at the West End Cultural Centre last week, Winnipeg pop quintet Boats officially released their new album, A Fairway Full of Miners, today — and if you like deliciously off-kilter indie-pop, then it sounds pretty effin’ great.

You can listen to¬†the album here, and if you dig that then you can buy it online. Alternately, you can get a real live physical copy in your hands at Winnipeg’s hallowed Music Trader outlet. And then get all up in their hashtags @boatsmusic to spread the love.

Outside of Winnipeg and like what you hear? You’re in luck: the band is about to head out on a winter tour that will see them dock in Saskatoon, Calgary and Edmonton in late February, before hauling the van all over the rest of North America.
