The Donkeys

Taking their cues from bands like Pavement, the Grateful Dead, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Donkeys craft melodic country-rock songs inspired by their state's warm weather and relaxed pace. High school friends Timothy DeNardo, Anthony Lukens, and Sam Sprague first played together as teenagers, and Jessie Gulati joined the latter two musicians in a band named the Moon and Sixpence soon after graduation. The musicians eventually banded together as the Donkeys, combining a melodic foundation with elements of classic rock, country, and power pop. The group signed with Antenna Farm Records and issued a self-titled debut in 2004. Leaving Antenna Farm several years later, the Donkeys eventually settled with the Texas-based label Dead Oceans before issuing their 2008 follow-up, Living on the Other Side. Born with Stripes arrived three years later, downplaying the band's twangy past in favor of laid-back pop songs. Fourth album Ride the Black Wave surfaced in 2014, its breezy Pacific Ocean pop vibrations offering further tributes to the sunshine and surrealness of their home state of California. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Awesome discovery on Pandora!

If @bobonnit gives it a bad review, it must mean it's something interesting made after 1979. I follow him just so I can check out the things he doesn't like, because that means it's probably good!

I'm definitely a Donkey Head now! Born With Stripes is a masterpiece to listen straight through. Who would've thought you could epitomize classic american rock on one album? How can you perfect power-pop, psychadelia, blues, rock, country and R&B all at once? Can you tell I'm addicted? Props to the bassist.

You wake up. You get your automobile to work. You're in a band called The Donkeys. You don't need medication.
