From Brooklyn, NYC comes a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but if they called those things “shitweeds,” the floral industry would look a whole lot different than it does today. So you gotta get over the fact that this Brooklyn trio has chosen the moniker Slonk Donkerson. I’m not issuing a command, mind you, just stating a fact of life. It’s an obstacle! But once you’ve cleared it, there’s a wealth of musical riches to be experienced. Slonk Donkerson play aggressive, guitar-heavy power pop that feels like part of a lineage including bands like the Replacements, Guided By Voices, and the Strokes, although it shares DNA with a whole world of other stuff, too, like ELO, Rush, Thin Lizzy … Ultimately, though, it’s all about the hooks, and on Slonk’s new LP, The Lunar Martini Motorbike Club And Their Respective Destinies, the hooks are everywhere. Like thorns, really, in a veritable rose garden of songs
