Having worked and re-worked its baggy-psychedelia cocktail, Brooklyn-based trio Dinowalrus set off in March towards its best efforts to date with 'What Now', pulling the droning vocals out of the washed-out depths of their reverb', picking up the pace with some fast steady drumbeats and glorious effusions of synth and guitars. Dropped five days ago, the shimmering 'Grounded' pursued this fuller, more fluid sound, only slower, so very laid-back that one can't help but notice the confidence they've gained over the last couple of years. If we're going to extrapolate here, there's a bigger and bolder Dinowalrus to be expected from their album to come (produced by Jorge Elbrecht).
The band will be playing this Friday (8.24) at Public Assembly, for a show introducing Ken Griffin's latest project August Wells and headlined by Variety Lights, Chicago-based duo featuring ex-Mercury Rev David Baker. All of this and more (including a Dj Set by Spacemen 3's Rosco) courtesy of the lovely Lady Bree.
