The Dodos

Are Jaime's favorite new band, or at least one of the many. When Jaime gets excited about these things those around him tend to notice so I decided to do some homework this week. The Dodos were enjoyable straightaway. I definitely like the low level of production. The tacktile feeling of the drum sticks clicking in the background and the rough edges will be enjoyable for those who like their rock and roll with healthy doses of easy going melodies and cleverly calculated harmonies. On my favorite track, Men Logan Kroeber awards his listeners with a feverishly paced race on his kit and Meric Long snares you with cheeky lyrics that will leave you eagerly awaiting their upcoming engagement at the Mercury Lounge.
