Go Run Donkey Hot! biography
Go Run Donkey Hot! (GRDH!) is a post-rock band that formed in Croatia in the winter of 2013. Originally from Nasice, currently based in Zagreb. Their music is characterized by noise and ambient elements that are filled with nonchalant dreamy melodies which tend to pour into dim guitar riffs accompanied by trumpet, which then give base for a rhythm section. While they state their main influences as local bands Kukuriku Street, Caffe ?Aparat? and Portman, others have compared them to bands like Mogwai, American Football or even Tortoise.

In summer 2015 they recorded their debut studio album 'Summerth' at Kramasonik Studio in Zagreb, under tutelage of renowned producer and recording engineer Hrvoje Niksic. The album was released on January 24, 2016. The entirety of the album was recorded in two days and most of the instruments were recorded live in order to achieve cohesive dynamics and an overall genuine sound.

Go Run Donkey Hot! Post Rock/Math rock

Review by zravkapt

4 stars Go Run Donkey Hot! is a newly formed instrumental four piece from Croatia. Influenced by local bands they create a music that sounds like a happier Godspeed You Black Emperor. The use of trumpet reminds me of another Canadian band, Do Make Say Think. This is their debut album and while it clearly is in modern mid-paced post-rock territory they at least attempt to make a sound for themselves. "Intros" is a nice, easy-going intro that is drumless until the very end where it segues into "Jutros." One of the highlights of the album, it starts out slow tempoed and mellow with a nice trumpet melody. Eventually the guitar gets more nasty sounding and they start to build a slow crescendo. The guitar almost solos at one point. Followed by the bass almost soloing.

At this point the almost crescendo is dying down. Near the end the tempo picks up while the trumpet playing gets more interesting. "Pegasus Pig" is much more of a build-a-crescendo type of post-rock. Again, the trumpet adds a whole lot here. "Fen" takes awhile to get along but settles into a nice mid-paced groove. "Queer Coin" makes a change around one minute in. A few changes in volume and tempo in fact. This is certainly the most dynamic track on the album. Overall the heaviest and fastest as well. Last track "Kafkaz" is very slow going until building a crescendo later on.

Overall a decent debut album. I believe you can get the CD or download from the group's Bandcamp. If you like a lot of the more mid-paced, crescendo building post bands but also want a little more variation, Go Run Donkey Hot! may be for you. I'll give this a 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars.

Thanks to zravkapt for the artist addition.
