The great thing about being so late to releasing the August mixtape is that September is here, and the mixtape is ready to go. It goes without saying but I think this mixtape is really great, and I’m digging the heck out of the songs that are on it. Please do let me know if you’ve heard stuff that we missed this month.

I’m super late (vacation, and some technical issues) to getting this to ya’ll but hey music is music.

[S]an Francisco rockers The Dodos have got a new album coming out 8/27 titled the Carrier, and have yet again released another track from the record. The track in question, titled “Substance,” which features a heavily rhythm focused drum line, which has been their bread and butter over the years, gang harmonies, and an ever scaling size and scope that will have you rocking along with them in no time, it features exactly what these guys do, big drums and then weaves in intricate guitar work and amps it up a bit. effortlessly embodies all of these traits, from the…
Yesterday San Fran’s The Dodos debuted their new video for their track ‘Good’ off of their recent album No Color which was out back in March. It’s a fantastic album that is well worth having in your collection for this year. As well as the video they also released a free live recording of a show they had in Amsterdam, which I spent the better part of the day listening to. So check out the video, download the free live recording, and grab yourself a copy of No Color
The Dodos just released a video for song ‘Companion’ off their newest album No Color. Its a scary ride of abduction, imprisonment and the unknown. What isn’t unknown is how much I
like love this album.
The Dodos will be touring all over NA this summer, with a fantastic stop here in boston. 🙂
San Francisco rock outfit the Dodos are preparing recently released their album, No Color, on March 15th via Frenchkiss. They say Neko Case is singing on half the LP, but honestly I haven’t noticed her at all. What I do notice is this is one of the most drum focused albums I’ve heard in a long time. The percussion is big, forefront, and totally flipping awesome.
Album opener, and first single, ‘Black Night,’ begins with this the marching cadence and this album immediately takes off, its powerful, grabbing, spirited, and actually quite aggressive. Aggressive is putting it light especially for a folk band, but the Dodos pull it off here, and actually do it quite beautifully.
After a lackluster 2009 effort, Time to Die, which I think most would say they were shooting for too much, the band went back to a simple duo, and totally stripped down No Color to is base, frenetic guitar and pounding drums and simple vocals (with back ups done by Neko Case.) Its an invigorating sound, and I can only imagine how huge this could sound live. The highlight on the album is Sleep, a boy-girl (duet?) with Neko Case that’s seriously infectious and will have you tapping your toes really quickly.
San Francisco rock outfit the Dodos are preparing to release a new album, No Color, come March 15th via Frenchkiss. In preparation they release ‘Don’t Stop,’ their second single from the album. Neko Case is singing on half the LP, and recently tweeted about this being her favorite track on the album. So far, it’s mine too, the finger plucking craziness, and the huge crashes are making this instantly stuck in my head the more i listen to it.
