Default The Dodos



MySpace.com - The Dodos - San Francisco, California - Happy Hardcre - www.myspace.com/thedodos

Anyone heard these guys? Their new album "Visiter" just came out and it's absolutely fantastic, I cant get passed the opening track entitled "walking"... its beautiful, just wish it was longer... although it somewhat flows into the next track "red and purple", which is equally as stunning. I actually think I like this album better than their debut.

They have another album? I thought this was their debut.

Anyhoo, as I said in another thread, not too impressed. :\

yeah, it's called "beware of the maniacs"... but at the time they went by the name Dodo Bird.

In a year of so far mostly disappointing Pitchfork bests, this is the most impressive by a walk imo. Next comes Hercules & Love Affair with Beach House: Devotion at third.

Yo adidasss, did you ever check out Plants & Animals?

One of those little Pitchfork recommendations that caught my attention simply because they claimed they were the "Montreal version of Blitzen Trapper" or the likes.

They had a new album out earlier this year called Parc Avenue, I'd be interested to see what you think of it. It has a lot of really good tracks on it. Whilst they're not all winners, I'm pretty sure you'd like most of it quite a bit. Especially the first 5 tracks.

I think Beware of the Maniacs is a tad better then their latest album.

I'm starting to really get into the whole album. Red and Purple has been my fav song off this for a while. But there are alot that I'm digging now Eyelids, Joe's Waltz, Winter, Park Song, Jodi, and God?

The album has a lot of depth, it is far from being a write-off. Musically rich and vast, full of well-executed ideas.
