More Dodos for Your Head

The Dodos @ the Mercury Lounge 4-6-08 - Friction NYC

A surprise for me that the Dodos sold out the Mercury Lounge in New York, but not too much of one. Their brand of Elephant Six-style song composition and choice in instrument selection blends together in an amazing fashion under the vocals of Meric Long. Their instore at Good Records here in Dallas after a week of SXSW madness was still mesmerizing and smile-inducing. They provide an excellent example of how a two-person act (with the occasional help of a third player) can produce a full sound and as much foot-stomping rock as any four or five-piece group. I highly recommend their new album Visiter and their previous album Beware of Maniacs.
