In comparison to the noisy rock sounds propagated by contemporaries such as HEALTH, Ganglians, and Liars, Dinowalrus is a far more unhinged outfit whose heavily reverberated atmospheres, herky-jerky basslines, and warped soundscapes bring to mind earlier days of post-punk. On "BEAD," the third track from this Brooklyn trio's debut, %, the spastic fervor of James Chance & The Contortions is invoked, while other songs like "I Hate Numbers" and "CMYK" seem to be directly inspired by Chairs Missing-era Wire and, simultaneously, the psychedelic sprawl of Can's discography. The obvious influences lend more to remembering old favorites than to finding new ones, yet Dinowalrus' album should appeal to fans of no-wave's vintage aesthetic.
