Drunken Boat is from Portland. They play really gritty pop punk songs filled with mostly indistinguishable lyrics. 1-2-3-4 GO! Records released their first self titled full length, and it's 27 minutes of simple four chord punk rock that is comparable to the first time I ever listened to Jawbreaker. They remind me of Punkin Pie a little bit, due to their similar song structures and boy-girl vocals, but there's nothing cute about this band. With loneliness, factory layoffs, death, and religion being Drunken Boat's primary targets, idealism, hope, and catchy choruses seem to outweigh everything else.
This came out in 2006, maybe this is old news, but either way, here is the link in a nice v0 mp3 for everyone.
