New Album From Bonny Doon

  The hazy melancholy and summery guitar swirls of Boony Doon’s self-titled debut album, released early last year, was a delightful discovery. Now the band are back with its follow-up Longwave, a conscious about-face from the sonic experimentation of the first album, and a journey inward. Delicate and spartan, we have the earnest and compassionate title track for you as well as the churning lope of A Lotta … Continue reading New Album From Bonny Doon

A beautifully judged mix of rolling Americana, freak folk, and a little psychedelia, the second track to be shared from the album is the equally good What Time Is It In Portland?
