Slam Donahue – Big House Nice Dreams
It’s Wednesday and I figured I would post something this week and after I blessed the rains down in Africa. It’s easy to get excited about these guys because they’re signed to Cantora Records, which is a buzz blessing (the label that launched MGMT into indie stardom).
Big House Nice Dreams is an EP released in March by Slam Donahue. The 7 song EP is rough and poppy at the same time. It’s ragged diamonds. Lots of people like when the stones are polished on and ornamented with nice golden productions. I kinda like when diamonds cut glass. This is the last time I will try to use a drawn-out jewelry analogy, but suffice to say this is one of my favorite EPs of 2012.
- It’s Scary
- No More Talking
- How To Be Cool
- Con Song
- Where Are You
- This Is All
I’ve included the EP to listen below. Personal favorite is No More Talking. I also included Where Were We On The Weekend because I love that song, too.
Yesterday, Slam Donahue released a new EP, Hemlock Tea. Check that out and here’s their Facebook page. Enjoy.
