“As their name implies, Dinosaur Feathers are a strange beast. A three-man band with no drummer that uses all three members’ considerable vocal talents to burst forth with acappella style harmonies. A band I have only seen in the winter that plays music whose sounds like summer. A band that operates out of Brooklyn in 2010 that, as far as I can tell, does not sound a single bit like any other band, doesn’t seem to be following any obvious trend, and as far as that is concerned, doesn’t give a damn if they’re trendy or not. And, I can’t get their songs out of my head. Finally, I watch these guys onstage, and they engage in some truly bizarre behavior– they smile, they seem to enjoy themselves, and they don’t seem self-conscious at all about actually looking happy! Give their songs a listen, and you might see why. This is music I would love to hear at an outdoor show in July, even though I loved it at Cameo in the freezing cold.
The Dinosaur Feathers have a self-released new record, Fantasy Memorial coming out on March 3rd. I recommend strongly that you check it out.
Thanks to Dinosaur Feathers for inviting nyctaper to record this performance. I recorded this from the center in the back of the room with the DPA microphones up high. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!”
