Perform On Fuel TV’s “Check 1, 2” On 12/2
Time To Die Out Now On Frenchkiss Records
“…quite possibly the most gorgeous Dodos composition to date”
“[Fables] suntanned folk jam is five minutes of Indian summer swaddled in acoustic guitar and marimba”
NPR Song Of The Day:
“…nestled in an ideal middle ground, where familiarity coexists with refreshing rhythmic surprises.”
“…Sampled vocal loops, syncopated plucking and drumming, spiky electric guitar, and vibraphone hits merge into a bright and bristling clatter.”
Airing Monday, December 21, at 8:00pm ET / 5:00pm PT, and re-airing several more times over the next month, FUEL TV will showcase “Check 1, 2: The Dodos.”
Indie rock outfit The Dodos use their unconventional approach to conjure up some beautiful, live noise. Follow the band on their journey down the Pacific Coast starting in their hometown of San Francisco. In Big Sur they present a magical set at the Henry Miller Library. Several days later they visit the legendary Casbah in San Diego.
This intimate mini-documentary features songs such as “Fools” from the band’s breakout release Visitor as well as “Fables” and “This is a Business” from their most recent Frenchkiss Records offering Time To Die.
