The first forays into early Smog like songwriting for the former punks known as Bonny Doon (I think I once went on holiday there). They got sick of punk (haven't we all) and instead tried to play their songs as quietly as possible which has resulted in an album of quietly pressed pop melodies that should make you swoon and long.

- Bonny Doon by Bonny Doon
This is laid back. Bonny Doon were a bunch of hardcore guys who decided to have a rest from being angry about everything and take things slow and steady. there's the odd moment of rock thrill such as the vibrant 'Lost My Way' but elsewhere these guys play a sort of horizontal form of slacker indie rock with severe nods to Pavement, the Wave Pictures and of course the Velvet Underground. Their songs are lo-mid fi compositions with lassez-faire couldn't-give-a-shit vocals. It's all rather lovely particularly when they colour in the sound on 'I See You' with organs and spangling guitars.
One for fans of Silver Jews I reckon. These lads can keep rocking quietly for a little while longer.
