Donny Hue and The Colors

Download: Donny Hue and The Colors – “Real, Long Time”

Donny Hue and The Colors' first album, Folkmote, combines lush, magisterial lullabies with shimmering chamber pop, yet the songs are haunted by psychedelic nursery rhymes gone horribly awry, and ghostly, incandescent dreamscapes. It's got a lot of early Of Montreal vibe to it, which is to say that it's got a lot of Kinks vibe to it! Haha. Donny moonlights in The Terminals with the wonderful Meredith Bragg as well. This is quality stuff, in part because it has a good time and doesn't take itself too seriously. Ace record label The Kora Records is putting this out (M. Bragg, Gregor Samsa).
