Donkeys - Born With Stripes
Have liked this band since I first discovered them on Daytrotter several years ago. Of course, it's Centro-matic related, somebody had kindly pointed me to Will Johnson's Daytrotter session and the Donkeys one caught my eye for some reason... Really liked the song "Come On Virginia" the first time I heard it, and wanted to hear some more.
Slacker psych is how I would describe it, but please don't let that put you off if you take "slacker" as a pejorative... give them a try. These guys can really play, they just aren't in a hurry. Really looking forward to getting my hands on this record.
