Remember when it was deemed uncool to be even remotely associated with the Grateful Dead? (Just mere moments before it was perfectly okay to "jam" and wear tie-dye.) It's a crazy, cyclical world we live in. The Donkeys have dirt-twirled dangerously close to the Dead's twangy jams, but the San Diego four-piece also has the wherewithal to stay within the lines of pop music. Born with Stripes—the band's second release on Dead Oceans—is a breezy road trip down the West Coast with your slacker friends, who also happen to listen to punk rock. Where was I going with this? These guys deliver laidback sounds of the '70s that are actually fun to listen to. No simple feat. MARK LORE
