Rowboat, row me to my shore

Thanks to the magic of MySpace friendship, I was recently hipped to Rowboat, the beautifully melancholy project from Sam McNitt of Blue Million Miles. I haven't had the chance to catch the act live yet, but if the tracks currently streaming on the MySpace profile are any indication, very tasty things are to come. Built around McNitt's sorrow-hardened voice, confessional lyrics and understated strumming, Rowboat's songs surge and swell with sad and resolute grandeur. Since sad music often makes me happy, I'm unreasonably excited about this outfit. Rowboat will play at the Meadowlark this Friday, February 20, and again on Saturday, March 14.
