The release of the Donkeys sophomore album Living on the Other Side is just around the corner, and in celebration the band is bringing their California-fried pop sounds on a cross-country tour. Texas, New York, Washington, Alabama, Utah, and points between, watch out, because the Donkeys are taking the show on the road.
We’ve been excited to read much of the advance praise of Living on the Other Side and John Darnielle (of Mountain Goats fame) really nails the essence of the Donkeys on his Last Plane to Jakarta website. Do not miss the link below for Darnielle’s great write-up.
In addition to this tour, we are sharing with you lucky dogs a second MP3 from Living on the Other Side. Check out “Nice Train,” where the Donkeys substitute their countrified waltz with an infectious pop ditty. With an offhanded vocal style that recalls Stephen Malkmus, “Nice Train” is a hilarious tale of a wild night on the town.
Living on the Other Side is now available for pre-order from Dead Oceans.
