We are extremely excited to announce that Dead Oceans will be releasing the sophomore full length from the Donkeys on September 9th, 2008. Living on the Other Side is a fun-loving, rollicking collection of catchy California-fried pop songs. Be sure to listen to the mp3 for “Walk Through a Cloud” for a taste of the Donkeys’ new masterpiece.
We decided to ask the Donkeys a few questions for this announcement, so we could tap into their fertile minds, and share the Donkeys world view with everyone. Here is what they had to say:
Why are you excited about working with Dead Oceans?
Anthony Lukens: I’m excited about having a reason to travel to Texas
and drink Lone Star beer, and Dead Oceans has fax machines and
computers, and from what I understand they accept collect calls. (No
we don’t – ed.)
What can we expect from the Donkeys in 2008?
Tim DeNardo: You can expect the phenomenon of the “donkey show” to no
longer be confined to our corner of the world. Its majesty will captivate every man, woman, and child across this fair land of ours. And if the French play their cards right we might pay them a visit as well.
Why do the Donkeys love San Diego?
Anthony Lukens: I’ll answer this question with a question: where else
in the universe does the air smell like burritos and suntan lotion at
the same time?
