This new Donkeys album Born With Stripes is their best so far, I think, still ramshackle in all the right ways but a lot more engaging. I reviewed it for Dusted today and said:
Born With Stripes is more gripping than its predecessors. The sound is clearer and more focused, thanks perhaps to Vetiver producer Thom Monahan. The rhythms are crisper and less meandering, and the songwriting has become both rougher and more exotic. More important, they’ve done all this without giving up the indolent charm that has been The Donkeys’ stock in trade.
There are two free mp3s:
"Don't Know Who We Are"
"I Like the Way You Walk"
