When: Sun., Jan. 18, 3 p.m. 2009

On Living on the Other Side (Dead Oceans) the DONKEYS deliver a sophisticated slice of country with the exhilaratingly light touch of Sweetheart of the Rodeo, but ultimately it’s Stephen Malkmus’s world these San Diego boys are living in. They keep it real with songs about rivers, trains, and diamond rings, and though the album’s not terribly ambitious, it’s very sweet and even gentlemanly. —Jessica Hopper
