I have a good friend I Can Lose - Donavon Frankenreiter - Start Livin considers Donavon Frankenreiter to be the summation of all that is wrong with music today. So adamant is she that I have a hard time admitting Frankenreiter is, indeed, one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Frankenreiter a pro-surfer turned singer-songwriter puts me instantly on island time.
He rocks, he sways, he strums a ukulele. Positive peace and love messages, retro grooves, his dusky voice and a hint of salt spray in the atmosphere. I mean, who loves their spouse these days? And writes albums-full of songs to that affect? The album launches with hand claps instead of drums hint: no drum kit was used in the making of this record and the fast-paced lyrics of the title track.
Un-fussy, breezy, airy. Okay, I made up the part about the chopsticks. His voice, his I Can Lose - Donavon Frankenreiter - Start Livin sense of rhythm, his effortless bell bottoms-and-fedora brand of cool. But, of Fast And Furious 4 - Various - Boum Coeur Records 3, this is what Start is all about.
The nine tracks are all stylistically and thematically similar. They set a mood; they remind us of some better part of ourselves — our vacation selves. The selves that take time, enjoy the day, watch the sunset, treat those around us with kindness. You must be logged in to post a comment.
