Oh boy, a road trip video soundtracked by music that recalls the mellow California sound of the 60s as epitomized by bands like Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds: just the perfect thing for enjoying on a Sunday morning while your coffee brews in the kitchen! At just One Minute, 48 Seconds, The Donkeys‘ video for their sublime “Blues in the Afternoon” reminds me of taking the train into Grand Central after a weekend spent in Connecticut, arriving back into the city and suddenly finding yourself heading down town on the subway like the trip out of Manhattan never happened. Maybe it was just a dream. Dreamy.
The Donkeys apparently carry this ‘California Dreaming’ vibe across eleven tracks on their new album, Ride The Black Wave, due for release on June 3rd, 2014 on Easy Sound Records. You can pre-order that at This Link. Enjoy!
