PTERODACTYL

On third album Spills Out, Brooklyn noise-punk mischief-makers Pterodactyl have mutated from their abrasive loft-show roots into a glorious, broken-pop juggernaut. The band's squealing, sweat-soaked art-bustle had rapidly put them alongside contemporaries like Oneida, These Are Powers and Parts & Labor; but Spills Out gently leads the trio towards the uplifting, wistful harmonies of '60s rockers like The Zombies, CSNY and the pre-acid Beatles. Pterodactyl's onomatopoetic barks have been replaced by a luxurious three-part croon; their adenoidal squawk has been expanded to include Spectorian levels of reassuring fuzz. Their most ambitious statement to date, Spills Out is triumphant, melancholic, unapologetically pop.

Parts & Labor’s Constant Future will be in stores March 8 (March 7 in the U.K.) but you can get your first taste of the future today. We’re proud to present the first Mp3, the title track from Constant Future. The song begins with a signature Parts & Labor synth melody before being pummeled with a percussive drone ticking along like clockwork, literally moving us into the future. Parts & Labor’s Dan Friel sings of our collective thirst for the “next” and the “newest.”
