MXTS 2010 Preview: Dinosaur Feathers
What do you need to know about the Brooklyn trio called Dinosaur Feathers beyond their super-awesome name? Two words: drum machine. But trust us, you’ve never heard drum machine like this before with acoustic guitar and lush multi-part harmonies layered on top as pleasing as a spring afternoon at Barton Springs. You’d think that a song called “Teenage Whore” would be a better fit for a death-metal band, but instead it sounds like Brian Wilson and Neil Finn fronting the Fleet Foxes. Really? Yes.
The band’s first full-length album, Fantasy Memorial went on sale on March 2. If you want a chance to try before you buy, their four-song EP is available for free download on the band’s website.
