Dinowalrus – “Psychic Pharmacy” (Stereogum Premiere)
Dinowalrus have been making spacey new wave for a while, but never before like they do on their upcoming third album, Complexion. After a very long period of work (one of the songs, “Grounded, first surfaced in 2012) the album will finally see a release this summer. Excitingly, the record is produced by Jorge Elbrecht, who did wonders with Ariel Pink last year. Now the band share the dazzling “Psychic Pharmacy,” a song overflowing with little sonic touches and surprises. This thing begs repeated listens. But whether you focus on those brief diva vocals, the fact there are enough layered ear worms here for three songs, the wailing guitar, or the final erupting sax solo, the band blend it all into one overwhelming body-shaking force. Listen to and download it below.
Complexion is out 6/4 via Personal Projects.
