Avis sur l’album

Donavon Frankeneiter recorded his first record under the friendly auspices of his buddy Jack Johnson's patronage. The self-titled album from 2004 was a quite enjoyable sun-kissed record that sometime suffered from being laid-back to the point of inertia. The first track from the follow-up lets the listener know that Frankenreiter is following a slightly different path, as "Move by Yourself" is a funky, uptempo rocker punctuated by a bubbling clavinet (think early-'70s Stevie) and a barn-burning guitar solo. The track has more energy by itself than the whole last record did put together. Now, you may initially be put off if you were a fan of the previous album, but the same basic underpinnings that made the last album so good are still here, like Frankenreiter's mellow wisp of a voice, his easygoing lyrics, and most of all an enveloping warmth that makes the disc as smooth as a summer nap in the shade. The added interest in arrangements shows through on songs like the string-laden, wah-wah-laced, vibraphone-dipped "The Way It Is," which happily brings to mind early Hall & Oates; the lowdown and nasty "Fool," which sports some gritty gospel backing vocals; and the dramatic and dynamic "Let It Go." These touches and the overall boost in energy and commitment add punch and flavor to Move by Yourself that the last album lacked. The main bread and butter of his style still remains the low-key and loose midtempo tunes, sweet as strawberry jam, like "These Arms," "Girl Like You," "Beautiful Day," and "By Your Side." Add up all the positives and you end up with one heck of an album that will impress jam band lovers with its lazy lope, surprise people with its unhurried soul, and make fans of peaceful and easy but not innocuous songcraft quite happy. Hopefully, Frankenreiter is still pals with Jack Johnson on a personal level, but breaking away from him musically worked out just fine.

Il y a du Jamiroquai et un zest de Greg Kihn Band dans cet album. Très chaud, voire sensuel. Recommandable...


Excellent nouvel album que celui de Donavon Frankenreiter, artiste qui gravite dans la sphère de Jack Johnson et G.Love - avec lesquels il partage régulièrement la scène. 11 morceaux en forme de synthèse des années 70 à 2000, réalisé "à l'ancienne" avec des guitares et des claviers très présents. Musicalement, c'est brillant; vocalement riche en émotions. Sans doute l'un des album de l'été, à découvrir d'urgence en regardant le soleil se coucher à l'horizon d'une mer d'huile...Enjoy !

The dude is cool !!!

à nouveau du bon son de la part de notre surfeur californien! bien sur c'est zen, agréable et positif dans la vibe mais cette fois cela bouge (move by yourself) plus que son premier album et c'est plus varié que la musique de son pote jack johnson! Surf, beers & music...bonne formule pour Donavon Frankenreiter alors thanx dude !!!

Before launching a solo career as the protégé of Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter began his professional life as a surfer. Born in Southern California on December 10, 1972, he landed a sponsorship with Billabong as a young teenager and moved to Hawaii when he was 14. There, he rented a home from the parents of Jack Johnson, a fellow surfer with an untapped musical talent. The two became fast friends, learning guitar together and hanging out between trips to the beach. Music was always a hobby...
