Bonny Doon :: S/T

Detroit's Bonny Doon have a knack for melodies that breeze by in easygoing fashion – each tune on the band's new self-titled LP is as effortlessly catchy as can be, calling to mind Stephen Malkmus at his friendliest. But underneath the Gold Soundz you'll find a vein of melancholy. A nice contrast. Bonny Doon wears its 1990s indie influences on its sleeve (Pavement, Silver Jews, the early Smog releases), but that's no complaint; songwriters Bill Lennox and Bobby Colombo bring a freshness and enthusiasm to these timeworn grooves, whether it's the lackadaisical . . .
