mp3s : Pterodactyl > Spills Out

In case you have not heard, Brooklyn’s own Pterodactyl have released their third long player, Spills Out via Jagjaguwar. On this record, the band continues to hone their craft. The Pterodactyl sound started out as abrasive noisepunk (check out a couple early tracks in the bonus section below). Their sound has since evolved into something more psychedelic, something a bit more pop. They have toned down the feedback, focused more on harmony and three-part croon, and added Wurlitzers, ukeleles, and Kawasaki Dual Cool Keys (a discontinued toy keyboard) to the mix. The album features guests appearances from Dan Friel (Parts & Labor), Zach Lehrhoff (Ex Models), organist Mike Gallope (Janka Nabay and the Bubu Gang), violist Amy Cimini (Architeuthis Walks On Land), and Frank Musarra (Hearts of Darknesses).
