New Music From The Donkeys – Digital Servicing Only

California places a distinct sonic stamp upon the music born within its boundaries. Owens had his Bakersfield, Parsons his Joshua Tree, and Malkmus his Stockton, and in their tunes you can hear dust, desert highways, and skateboards gliding over suburbia. The Donkeys have San Diego, and from that environment have woven a fundamental ease in their music – a rock, a roll, a sway, a slide – you could even call it a breeze. On their new album Ride the Black Wave, due June 3, 2014, The Donkeys continue their easy rolling, classic vibrations, but add a mystery and tension that make this record their most lyrically and instrumentally compelling. Recorded at San Diego’s Singing Serpent and mixed by LA’s Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Beachwood Sparks, Vetiver), the Telecasters have a golden shimmer while the drums seem to echo with a regional reverberation.Their new single “Scissor Me Cigs” premiered on The A.V. Club earlier this week, calling it “an easy, breezy track from the San Diego group. The group’s drowsy aesthetic is in full effect, so much so that listeners might find themselves whisked away to dreamland—in a good way, of course.”
