Album Review
Telepathic Juan
Reviewed 2017-06-20 

Detroit, Michigan’s Bonny Doon’s self-titled debut album takes you back to the early 1990s college radio days where American bands started blending post-punk guitar dynamics with old country melodies in search of new sounds. Inspired guitar-based compositions in the tradition of early Wilco and Pavement circa Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. Very fond of their abrupt change of tempos and the lo-fi recorded fragments here and there.

RIYL: Real Estate, Ultimate Painting, Wilco, Nap Eyes, and Pavement’s Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.

Recommended Tracks: 1, 2 (FCC), 4, 5, 7, 8, 11

1. (3:22) *Relieved – Guitar-driven, mid-tempo recording. They want a range life too. Ultimate Painting comes to mind.
2. (3:06) *Summertime Friends – FCC (Fucking). Organ/guitar-driven, mid-tempo track. Groovy and ready for a road trip.
3. (3:52) What Time Is It In Portland? – Wilco meets Nap Eyes. Synths too! Medium tempo. Kinda sad.
4. (4:44) **Lost My Way – Upbeat psych pop gem. Cool guitars, better lyrics. By minute 3:38, the song begins to slow down until it vanishes, one instrument at the time.
5. (4:23) **I See You – Medium tempo recording. Pavement meets Ultimate Painting.
6. (0:59) (You Can't Hide) – Short instrumental – guitar driven. Lo-fi territory.
7. (2:59) ***You Can't Hide – Memorable composition. Medium-up tempo. Great guitars. Better lyrics. Play it.
8. (2:53) *Never Been To California – Another cool medium tempo recording where Pavement stopped by to bless the beer. True story.
9. (0:59) Maine Vision – Fragment of an upbeat killer jam a la Parquet Courts.
10. (3:25) Evening All Day Long – Summer, Bob Dylan and Wilco are here. Mid tempo.
11. (4:58) *(Crowded) – Lo-fi instrumental guitar piece. Melancholic. Great ending.
