Donkey

They come, riding fog, thirsty mules. A new breed with eyes on their arms, moving like hungry hunters, not yet poised to sleep. Inspecting valleys, terrain shifts, boasting blades and breathing machines, with ivory handles, and sharp edges, performing mid-air flips in such far-flung territories as California, Pacific Northwest, East Coast, Japan and Mexico.

Donkey are LA synth player Hans Fjellestad and NYC sound manipulator Damon Holzborn, building intensive noise structures for over 20 years.

Donkey

"Fjellestad and Holzborn create a dense, festering tropical sound texture... a compound sonic miasma reminiscent of the bubbling inventive density of Matmos and the psychotic drawl emerging from the bottom of a Frank Zappa cheeseburger."
- The Wire

"Noisy, occasionally brutal, this is not a Merzbow-esque assault. There is pace, tension and most of all invention."
- All-Music Guide

"A new sonic horizon, and booga to the "Oh, electronic music! It's so cold! So unfeeling! Waah!" crowd, the excitement that the interchange of creativity and challenge these two are engaged in fairly leaps into your ear."
- Signal to Noise

"Donkey veer from the heady extremes of pure adrenaline noise to the more cerebral and chin stroking intellectual exercise that is improvisation at its most inventive."
- Acid Attack Music

"Leaping between towers of abstraction, dragging note clusters over cruelly sharp rough terrain, Donkey mess around in the margins of an ever-playful train of sonic events."
- Metamorphic Journeyman

"The intensely industrial sound is a heavy improv audio feast... Show is quite possibly the best experimental album of the new millennium."
- Smother E-zine
