8/10 Mike Staff review, 21 December 2011
We've got a delightful little single here from dreamy folk-popper Rozi Plain, who's put together a delicate little twee number called 'See My Boat' on the A side which bursts unexpectedly into lo-fi party weirdness in the middle that recalls the Mae-Shi. Really quite an unusual and charming piece which is slickly arranged but still has that lo-fi bedroom pop feel. Clever ideas and big tunes in a concise little package. Flip it and her famous friends are chipping in with their own interpretations of her songs. First up This Is The Kit do 'When Are You Coming? Come On!', which is a pretty piece of folk pop with silky vocals and a fingerpicked guitars which are joined by an accordion and trumpet and handclaps for the rousing choruses. Then Pete 'and the Pirates' Heffernan chips in with 'The Post', which he turns into a hushed hymn with reverby guitar and warm organ drones. Sounds quite Christmassy actually, bit of a spooky 'When A Child Is Born' feel about it. Drags on a bit to be honest, I like Rozi Plain's own side the best, but the covers
