The Donkeys and “The End” of L O S T

There are a lot of hardcore LOST fans here at Dead Oceans, and we don’t really know what to make of the finale. We’re all still processing!  What I do know, though, is that there were a TON of commercials last night.  There were a few, though, that I wasn’t very bothered by because they featured the Geronimo Jackson song “Dharma Lady.”

On Friday a cool interview went up at the Paste website with Tim DeNardo from The Donkeys about becoming Geronimo Jackson and contributing a song for the show. Mystery = solved.

The Target commercials for LOST are pretty funny. It would have been funnier if they had been for polar bear traps, Jacob-killing daggers or giant ankhs or something, but I guess they have to move merchandise.  Each one ended with a little riff from “Dharma Lady.”  Coooooool!

If your interest in The Donkeys has been piqued, might I suggest purchasing their excellent album Living On the Other Side? It features the original version of “Dharma Lady” (“Excelsior Lady”).  They are also about to go on tour with WHY? on the west coast, so please check out their new tour dates.

I leave you with this hilarious fan video of Juliet and Sawyer’s beautiful relationship, set to the recording of “Dharma Lady.” Enjoy.
