I was looking through the Newbury Comics new music newsletter for last week and noticed that there was a new Donnas album coming out. I was a huge fan of ‘Spend the Night’, but their follow-up album, ‘Gold Medal’ fell a bit flat for me. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who felt that way either. I still liked ‘Spend the Night’ more than enough to be glad to search out their new album ‘Bitchin’ on the internets. I finally got around to giving it a listen last night.
I am delighted to say that the album rocks. Literally.
It is a happy return to their heavier rock style from ‘Spend the Night’ (which is still on heavy rotation on my MP3 player). They totally turn it up with more guitars and a heavy influence of 80’s rock hair band that is more than apparent.
This album will be purchased the next time I’m in Newbury Comics. I support bands that put out good music. As rare as that is lately.
Here is a good review.
