It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that Donavon Frankenreiter is friends with Jack Johnson: They’re both surfers (Frankenreiter has surfed professionally), and both play the same style of mellow, sunburned soft-rock that makes tanned bros weepy. It wouldn’t be out of the question to picture those two together coolly battling each other in a Chill-Off.
That said, there’s something undeniably soothing about Frankenreiter’s performance of “You” in this edition of A Trolley Show. It could be his bandmate’s (dare we say it?) stunning use of the ukulele, or it could just be the general good vibes that melt away our worry (despite the persistence of our cold, black hearts). In either case, we dig it.
