Donavon Frankenreiter is a blast straight from the 1970s, bringing you only the best relaxing, soothing tunes. Think Jack Johnson with a dash of funk - a little "dance to the music" if you will.
Frankenreiter's third album, "Pass it Around" dropped in stores early September.
The first single from the album, "Life, Love & Laughter" sums up every aspect of what Frankenreiter stands for.
"Don't look back / it won't do any good," he sings. "Don't look ahead / you'll just be misunderstood. / Everything you need / could be right in front of you. / It doesn't take much to see what is true."
With songs such as "Life, Love & Laughter," "Too Much Water," and "Mansions on the Sand," Frankenreiter is sure to keep you grooving. Frankenreiter, a Southern California born surfer, is all about the simple things, which he relates to his music. He knows how to make a catchy song that is just repetitive enough to the point where it doesn't get annoying. You could take any of his first three albums and put them on at a party or while you are relaxing by the pool and they would provide the perfect soundtrack.
If you are looking for a more in-depth explanation of Frankenreiter's music you could compare him to Jack Johnson. The two are friends, and Johnson signed Frankenreiter to his Brushfire Fairytales record company for his first self-titled album. His music has been classified as soft rock or surf rock. His acoustic guitar, with a bit of rhythm guitar, accompanies the drums and bass guitar.
If you are already a fan of Frankenreiter you will not be disappointed. If you are new to him and like music that can jam and be chill at the same time, then I would suggest you go pick up a copy of the album and his first, self-titled album while you're at it.
