The Boats We Made It For You
- Words: Dave Stenton
- Label: Moteer
The Boats‘ second album is based largely-and at times solely-around a piano. Occasionally, a sequencer makes itself known via some stuttery passages, and a half-hearted kick-drum surfaces at one point, too; but, for the most part, it‘s just piano. Such a bare bones approach results in a fragility and intimacy that is sometimes so acute you feel like an intruder (the track titles, which are all people‘s Christian names, don‘t help in this respect); elsewhere, though, We Made It For You is as comforting as a favorite chair.
