Boats’ Cannonball Run


No doubt Mat Klachefsky and the rest of Boats are having a time at SXSW right now. (Can you smell my jealousy, even despite this above zero weather?) And no doubt the band is playing a boatload of new songs from the upcoming album Cannonballs, Cannonballs. And though we don’t have barbecues accompanied by bands from all over the world, Klachefsky and gang have three new songs up on their MySpace. Klachefsky’s singing in his trademark falsetto on the indie ballad “Smokestack & Lucy’s Magnificent Cabaret” and “Drinking the Lake” is a happy, sunny afternoon kind of track.

And after Boats tour their way back to Winnipeg, they will be releasing Cannonballs, Cannonballs on May 1 at the West End Cultural Centre.
