Dinosaur Pile-Up - Celebrity Mansions
Published: 5:06 pm, June 06, 2019

We’ll be honest, Dear Readers. When we put together the list of albums we were most excited to hear in 2019, we forgot about Dinosaur Pile-Up. That’s no slight on the three-piece - they’ve been consistently in credit for years now - but when gathering those potential glittering delights for the year ahead, they didn’t cross our collective minds.

And yet here we are, as summer comes along, and they’re dropping one of the most riotously fun full-lengths you could possibly imagine. ‘Celebrity Mansions’ is an album that leaves everything on the field. From the Foo Fighters But Way Less Boring opening salvo of ‘Thrash Metal Cassette’ through the strutting swagger of ‘Back Foot’, lesser peers would dial the attitude back in favour of the safety of the pack. There’s none of that here, though.

Maximum attitude, it turns out, is the catalyst to DPU’s infernal engine. Across ten tracks, they never once slow their pace or wind off into introspective pondering. For a band who called their last album ‘Eleven Eleven’, there’s no prizes for guessing the volume requirements here. Loud and proud.
