Yet another reason to believe in the burgeoning Oakland scene: Boats‘ new EP for the freshly-minted Dollops label (also an Oakland institution). Bleaving marks the debut outing of Boats, complete with nine tracks of subtly funky, crisply crafted, and utterly irresistible beat work. Although the namesake may be new on the scene, the man behind it is not, having done time as Bazooka Joint and contributed to two of our very own Mapzzz EPs, first as half of the Liquorice Ginsberg duo and later under his given name, Aaron Ferguson. All this to say, the man is talented. You can stream the entire Bleaving EP below and pick it up for a “Name Your Price” fee over on Dollops’ Bandcamp.
