Best of NYC #15: Dinosaur Feathers, now touring the US

Best of NYC #15: Dinosaur Feathers, now touring the US

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record store personnel, DJs, and our writers and readers).

Dinosaur Feathers are a quirky, different kind of pop -- both undeniably and instantly likeable. There’s a lively looseness about the Beach Boysie and XTC-type musical arrangements that come across as laid-back and cool, rather than sloppy. Strip away all these strange goodies accompanying the songs, and at the bare fruit revealed is smart pop-island music, clearly influenced by now-extinct dinosaurs of the 60’s. Only a band with a warped tropical mindset, fusing fun and talent, could produce such passionately diverse music (check out “Vendela Vida”), all while retaining an anchored uniqueness. Failing to get excited about Dinosaur Feathers is not an option. The band is currently busy touring the US, they'll be back home in late August with a show at Littlefield on the 28. - Paul Dunn
