Detroit combo Bonny Doon plays pleasantly laconic garage pop infused with a rickety lo-fi country bent.
Formed in 2014 by Bill Lennox (vocals, guitar), Bobby Colombo (vocals, guitar), Josh Brooks (bass), and Jake Kmiecik (drums), the quartet introduced itself with a four-song 7" EP released by Detroit label Salinas Records
later that year. A second EP, this time a five-song cassette called Classical Days and Jazzy Nights, appeared in early 2015 on Fred Thomas
' Life Like
label. The band would later reconvene with Thomas
to record its self-titled full-length debut. A mix of wry and thoughtful introspection and spontaneous guitar pop, Bonny Doon's debut was released by Salinas
in March 2017. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
