BOAT is Spin's "band of the day"

The folks at Three Imaginary Girls just gave a heads up that BOAT was named Spin Magazine's "band of the day." Congrats, fellas.

Generally, BOAT feels like Modest Mouse filtered through '60s pop radio, though various influences adorn the new album. "Come With Me, We'll Win" bleeds a barroom wail into a loping slither, and the seemingly Kinks-inspired "Illustrate the History" warps into a mono acoustic Jack White-meets-Britt Daniel-like ditty on "When I Grow Up."

They have an mp3 link up, as well.

Of course, you can see them live tonight at the TIG show.
