Before Grizzly Bear drops their own harmony-soaked full-length later this year, be sure to check out the band just as in touch with the rhythm of the rising tide, and all set to compliment your next beach volleyball game better than mopey Ed Droste ever could anyway.
Dinosaur Feathers' new single 'Untrue' (streaming below, off just-released record 'Whistle Tips') is something Franz Ferdinand might have made if they spent some time surfing in Mali. The album as a whole feels like the band mic'ed a barbeque and recorded the site live... Another standout is the groove-a-licious 'Fantasy Memorial.' The track is so much fun, you'll feel like you just met the woman of your dreams (who happens to surf in... Mali!)
Check the group out when they come back home in the Fall after an east coast tour with Fang Island, and be sure and listen to the new record on their blogspot. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
