December 5, 2010

The Brooklyn band Dinowalrus has executed a bit of a reboot lately, changing both their personnel and their approach. The former Titus Andronicus guitarist Pete Feigenbaum, the band’s frontman and guitarist, has added a new player on bass, Liam Andrew, as well as Depreciation Guild drummer Anton Hoccheim, and has sought to clarify some of the ideas explored on the band’s debut LP, %. One of the band’s goals, as they put it, is to be “structurally unorthodox,” but at times that led to performances that lacked focus – it could seem that one song was a jumble of concepts rather than a unified whole. This show at the Knitting Factory showcased both reworked arrangements of their older material as well as new songs that continue the band’s love affair with Krautrock, acid rock, noise, thrash punk and psychedelia, but have much more musical consistency and pop sensibility. Listen to “RICO” below and see if you agree. The band’s new approach has already received positive notice in several publications, and we expect that trend to continue in 2011. We still have no idea what the hell a “Dinowalrus” is, but now we can say that this musical creature is a strange beast with a purpose.

I recorded this set with the DPA microphones at the soundboard. They captured the excellent house mix by Rob of the Knitting Factory perfectly. Enjoy!
