joel gion - apple bonkers

Joel Gion, tambourine star of the Brian Jonestown Massacre and also leader of the under-appreciated Dilettantes, just announced his upcoming LP, Apple Bonkers. The album comes out on August 19 via The Committee to Keep Music Evil and The Reverberation Appreciation Society, and you can check out Gion’s new video for “YES” below.

According to Gion:

“With all the BJM members now living so spread out across the world, I found myself increasingly missing the album making process. This feeling of disconnect is what kick started me into exploring my own song writing process and turned out to be a hugely important piece of self discovery. No more time for my beloved laziness. So I made my own music with a with bunch of friends in the studio coming and going and having a great time creating. I think a lot of people are going to be surprised by this album.“
