closet-folkie Review: Boys (The Ditchflowers)-it's a beauty (1) 'Boys' by The Ditchflowers-it's a beauty 13 Mar 07

I'm not sure that many would consider The Ditchflowers a Folk band, but the song "Boys" from their album "Carried Away" was a finalist in the Folk category of that John Lennon Songwriting Contest thingy, so there's a folkiness there somewhere, I suppose, albeit with a McCartney-ish/XTC-ish bent.
Either way, it's a corker of a song (innocence, childhood friendships and all that good stuff), and well worth a listen. I'd be interested in anyone's thoughts on it. Personally speaking, it gave me the goose flesh.
I believe you can stream the songs from the album here
