Live Concert Photography: Sharkmuffin and Dinowalrus with Dead Leaf Echo and Drawing Boards at Rough Trade 9/25/16
Now, if you’ve stopped by this site earlier today — or over the course of the past three months or so, you’ve likely come across a couple of posts on Brooklyn-based indie rock/shoegazer act Dinowalrus. Comprised of frontman and founder Pete Feigenbaum, who has spent time as a touring guitarist in blogosphere darling act Titus Andronicus; Max Tucker; Meaghan Omega; Dan Peskin; and touring member John Atkinson, the act have received attention for three singles off their recently released fourth, full-length album FAIRWEATHER — “Tides,” Light Rain” and “Falling into the Periphery.” And while each single manages to draw from various yet very familiar sources, they all mange to further cement the band’s reputation for crafting the sort of motorik grooves that bring the Manchester sound and 4AD Records to mind — in particular think of The Stone Roses and others.
Over the six year history of this site, you’ve likely come across a number of posts about Brooklyn-based shoegazer act Dead Leaf Echo and during that same period of time, the members of the band have seen a growing national and international profile as they’ve made multiple appearances at SXSW, CMJ, NXNE, Northside Festival and the Beautiful Noise Festival, opened for a number of renowned indie acts including The Wedding Present, A Place to Bury Strangers, . . . And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, The Psychedelic Furs, Chapterhouse, Ulrich Schnauss, Weekend, Lorelei, The Ocean Blue, The Warlocks, Beach Fossils, and The Telescopes and have had several singles hit CMJ’s Top 20 Indie charts. Their set opening for co-headliners Sharkmuffin and Dinowarlus was primarily comprised of material off their 2013 4AD Records-inspired full-length debut effort Thought and Language and their four previously released EPs and handful of singles.
Opening the night, was the Queens-based indie rock quartet Drawing Boards, who released their self-titled EP earlier this year.
