Donavon Frankenreiter is a surfing buddy of Jack Johnson. He also makes music that surprisingly isn't too dissimilar to Johnson's. Add to that the fact that Johnson produces and plays a variety of instruments and sings on Frankenreiter's debut CD and you have a record that is tailor-made for fans of Jack Johnson. Also for fans of laid-back, good-time music, that has much in common with jam bands like Phish (without the instrumental prowess and willingness to show it off) and also soft rock sounds of the '70s. Every song is built around acoustic guitar, quiet drums, and mellow percussion, and Frankenreiter never raises the tempo much past ramble, although on "Day Dreamer" he does dial it all the way up to lope. Frankenreiter has a good-natured stoned drawl of a voice that delivers his light and breezy lyrics perfectly and with slacker soul. The pure sweetness of the album may turn off some listeners as might the similarity of the songs, but those who are into it will be very into it. Perfect for campfires late at night on the beach, early Sunday-morning afters, and lazy days in the cubicle, Frankenreiter has crafted a fine debut full of friendliness and low-key charm.
