The intrinsic beauty of Saturday Night’s QuietColor show at House of Yes lies in the total spectrum of sound covered by its five acts. Every band brings a unique perspective on what it means to be an “indie-rock” band in this new decade. Case in point: Dinowalrus, a self-described “three-piece drum-and-drone band,” who sits smack in the middle of Saturday’s stellar line-up.

Artist: Dinowalrus
Song: Electric Cars, Gas Guitars

Featuring a member of Titus Andronicus, Dinowalrus brings more than a little of Titus’ energy, enthusiasm and punk rock ethos to the songs on their new album “%”. But in place of the former band’s loose bombast, here Dinowalrus brings tight break beats and sweeping, dreamy, noisy atmospherics. It’s a winning formula, one that pays off on songs like “Electric Car, Gas Guitar.”

Dinowalrus are bridging the gap between several disparate indie rock flavors – the electronic noise flourishes, punk rock guitar, and occasional tribal-influenced drumming – and they bring them together artfully and successfully again and again.

    [Images via ]The bags of Dior Spring 2014 seem to have one very clear message: if you have the budget for exotics, Dior would like to talk to you about some handbags. If not, well, most of these bags will also come in regular leathers…but do you have any friends who have the money for crocodile? If so, can you give Dior their contact information? The brand would be much obliged.
