Check out Audio Bonzai’s review of “Golden Nuggets”!
“There is not much information out there on the mysterious, rabbit-headed musician known as Chonk. We know that from his secret lair somewhere in the San Francisco bay area, he writes incredibly infectious songs that make us re-evaluate our lives. And we know he that he deserves a hell of a lot more attention than he is getting. Like the narrator of this song, we pan for golden nuggets through the storm of new music that we see each week. And this track is one of those that makes it all worth it to have found.”
