MUSIC REVIEW OF THE DAY: THE DONKEYS - RIDE THE BLACK WAVE
Sunny Daze is the perfect title for the lead-off track, as it does incorporate some seagull sound effects, strumming campfire acoustics, harmonies and a lead vocal that sounds like the guy from America, but it also has a fuzzy, distant feel. It`s one of a couple that question whether one should stay in the Golden State, or try out the rest of the world. I Heart Alabama expresses love for other places, but states `Gonna keep my home in California`, while chugging along in a nice country-rock groove, as invented there. Giving themselves the whole musical palette of their state, The Donkeys have a fun and eclectic album, with a extra dollop of peaceful on top.
