The Donkeys‘ new release, Midnight Palms, is relatively short. Yet, according to the AllMusic Guide, “this brief outing adds another five sun-soaked charmers to their growing canon of laid-back, slightly fuzzy West Coast rock.” AMG gave the mini-LP four out of five stars in its recent review, which breaks the album’s five tracks down and explains how the band crafts its sound “using familiar chord changes but painting the canvas with their own palette of colors.” Read it here.
One of the strongest tracks on Midnight Palms is opener “Hurt Somebody,” for which the band created a whimsical music video. Available via Paste Magazine, the “Hurt Somebody” clip plays on the song’s title by juxtaposing vintage videos of wrestling violence with the jangly, bright sound of the music itself.
