Boat Club: "Spanish Castles"


Caught The Breeze cover art.

Back in March, when I first heard the debut "Warmer Climes" single from Gothenburg's Boat Club, I noted: "Boat Club's got tons of potential and I can't wait to hear more from them." Well, I've finally heard more from them, in the form of their brand new EP Caught The Breeze. It includes both tracks from the "Warmer Climes" single as well as four (really good) new tracks. I wasn't totally sure which main direction the band were headed in, but from the looks of the majority of Caught The Breeze it seems they're mostly building upon that jangly electro-calypso pop sound we heard on "Warmer Climes," and adding a bit more grandeur -- all but one song here reach past the five-minute mark.

[MP3]: Boat Club :: Spanish Castles (VERY HIGHLY REC'D!!)
The closing track on the EP, "Spanish Castles," is the new standout for me, exemplifying the grandeur perfectly. Clocking in at 6:10, the track is consitantly building from the beginning; keyboards and synths rising and falling, weaving in and out of each other all along the way, jangly guitar ringing out over the ocean of keys only to be promptly shot down by the snap of computer generated snare. It's all quite beautiful, and by the time the dreamy vocals singing "You've got everything that I want" come in as the song begins it's descent, I'm already in love.

Caught The Breeze came out July 11th on small Swedish label, Luxury. You should buy it there if you like what you hear! And, if you're interested in the "Warmer Climes" 7", you can still pick that up from the lovely I Wish I Was Unpopular.

A Neutral Milk Hotel cover? How fucking original of you. Maybe you could follow up with a Beat Happening cover? I'm yawning at the thought of you recording at David Barclay's house. How do you spell boring?

Can you actually figure out how to buy the CD from Luxury? I can find their download store and a link to some Swedish site called CDON that stocks it, but I can't determine how to order direct.

You know, it looks like they've got a mailorder set up, but you probably have to email them and I dont even see an email. I'm thinking your best bet, if youre really looking to get it, is to send a message to the band on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/boatclub

TODAY’S MUST FOR MOST ELITES…
Yachting or Luxury Boating whatever you may call it, is a Leisure Loved the World-over!.. Undoubtedly an Industrialist or even a small Business Magnet can decide to Own an average Yacht or Speed-boat, & the decision would Really be right if it was to be just Onetime Investment Without any After-investment Tensions..that too, when an Owner is known to be able to Use/Enjoy It totally 25 Days/Nights in an Year!!...
The Ownership Economic entails endless technical tensions of Man-management-n- Maintenance, Berthing & Insurance etc….
