Bonus Track Versions of The Donkeys’ Born With Stripes — Out Today!

Rejoice. The Donkeys’ latest, greatest longplayer, Born With Stripes, is out for mass consumption today. And for our San Diego Donkeys fans, this week is a regular old Donkfest. There are listening parties, in-stores and release shows a-go-go — the info for all of which can be checked out HERE. Be sure to also note the upcoming Donkeys show in your area on the tour that begins next week.

Both iTunes and Amazon have BONUS TRACK versions of Born With Stripes as well. Over at iTunes, you will find the comsic, self-referencing “Take You Up,” a Dead-like jammer that features the wonderful phrase, “Better buy new sneakers/Gonna clean out your ears/Wanna roll out your speakers/Because The Donkeys are finally here/To take you up.” At Amazon, you can get the plaintive, Willie-esque acoustic number “Let Your Eyes Adjust.” It’s stoner, surfer genius for your next late night beach bonfire. Both tunes were recorded with Alex deLanda. Look for more cool Donkeys news coming very, very soon.

Hear the New Akron/Family Album this Weekend

DOC045

After a mighty quest to free their new album from the grips of the Volcano Gods, Akron/Family has returned triumphant and will offer a first listen to their new album S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT this weekend at select cities across the U.S. All the listening parties are free of charge, and if by chance there isn’t a listening party happening in your city, you can join the party on Jan. 8 at the Media Arts Center in San Diego live at 10pm (PST), via video webcast HERE. Check out the full list of listening parties after the jump.
