Dana Buoy's Summer Bodies

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Dana Buoy is a new project from Dana Janssen, drummer/singer/multi-instrumentalist of the band Akron/Family. Dana Buoy's new album is titled "Summer Bodies," and the songs seem bathed in sunlight, with a summery warmth fueling their exuberance. Dana visits the WNYC Studio with drum machines and other gadgets, his electric guitar, and bassist/keyboardist/back-up singer Justin Miller, to perform his new songs and explain to host/producer David Garland how a trip to a remote lagoon in Thailand, time spent on the coast of Mexico, and falling in love have colored and shaped his music.

Interesting but not conjuring up that Summer feeling . . . maybe this aging child of the '60's is still looking for Summer sounds from back then. They were (for the most part) happy, fun diddies . . . this stuff is kind of droning . . . not making me want to wax up my Dewey Weber.

Cheers!
