Dinosaur Feathers - Fantasy Memorial
Sometimes, all it takes is a band's name to convince me, and the music inevitably follows. Beach Fossils, Fartbarf, The Gromble, and more are all groups I discovered through their winsome names, and they've all been outstanding acts. One month from tonight (4/13), the inventively-titled Dinosaur Feathers play The Outer Space in Hamden. Sonically akin to Vampire Weekend covering Fleet Foxes, Dinosaur Feathers' debut Fantasy Memorial places the listener in a tropical netherworld somewhere between the Mediterrean and the Carribbean. It's the sort of warm weather music that buoys the spirit, drenched with an infectious happiness that is as enjoyable the hundreth time as it was the first. We couldn't be more excited for the show, happening just days after their sophomore LP Whistle Tips drops, which will aso feature Phillie-based art-rockers Grandchildren and local favorites EULA. We'll be writing more as it aproaches, but until then here's the first two tracks off Fantasy Memorial "I Ni Sogoma" and "Vendele Vida".
