Pitchfork:

“…quite possibly the most gorgeous Dodos composition to date”

SPIN:

“[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.”

The Onion:

“…Sampled vocal loops, syncopated plucking and drumming, spiky electric guitar, and vibraphone hits merge into a bright and bristling clatter.”

Release Debut LP On Frenchkiss/Mom + Pop Records Out March 16th

NPR : “Freelance Whales: Busking to the Big Time”

NME : “It’s awash with gentle, naive bliss, and if you’re the type that likes to observe hooks blossoming with the pace of an actual flower opening, then you might have just found a new favourite band.”"

Stereogum : “Band To Watch” – “There’s palpable warmth and tactful touch that crackles throughout their strongest tunes’s group chants, harmonies, that should prove irresistible…”

Brooklyn Vegan : “The band’s varied indie-pop has a humble, homespun quality to it. They lean on banjos and xylophones for tender rural sounds to a good effect”

Paste Magazine : Freelance Whales use banjo, harmonium, cello, glockenspiel, synthesizers and guitars to create something that sounds a lot like pure joy

To call them multi-instrumentalists might be a little overdone. The kids in Freelance whales are really just collectors, at heart. They don’t really fancy buffalo nickels or Victorian furniture, but over the past two years, they’ve been collecting instruments, ghost stories, and dream-logs. Somehow, from this strange compost heap of little sounds and quiet thoughts, songs started to rise up like steam from the ground.

It’s here! After a slight delay, EAR FARM and Let ‘Em In Studios are thrilled to announce the release of Do you EAR what I EAR?, a holiday album for the Association to Benefit Children, available NOW as a digital download exclusively on EAR FARM’s Store Page for a suggested minimum donation of $5.00.

Do you EAR what I EAR? features original and classic holiday songs from Tom Tom Club, Asobi Seksu, Sean Bones, Sharon Van Etten, and many more, and all of the proceeds will go directly to the Association to Benefit Children, an outstanding New York-based service dedicated to permanently break the cycles of abuse, neglect, sickness and homelessness among disadvantaged children and their families. Awarded a four-star rating by Charity Navigator, ABC carries out this mission through a series of compassionate, sustainable, comprehensive and integrated services. They are a charity near and dear to our heart, and we’re grateful to have rounded up such a vast array of exceptional people to help them out in a season that’s all about giving back.

The album has already received advance praise from Pitchfork, The L Magazine, Consequence of Sound, and more, and we’re delighted to finally share the result of nearly four months of inspired collaboration and efforts among an incredibly talented and generous group of bands and musicians, as well as the comprehensive recording and mixing services of Nadim Issa and Let ‘Em In Studios – a stellar new recording studio now open in the Gowanus/Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn (hint hint go check it out, bands) – and the mastering expertise of Emily Lazar and Joe LaPorta at The Lodge.
Our role involved coordinating and curating the compilation, inviting a spectrum of genres and sounds into the project and working with both dear friends and musicians we’ve long admired and are now fortunate enough to also consider as friends.

“…tender, whimsical and subtly tripped-out folk-pop, topped off with ecstatic harmonies.” – Time Out New York

“Rings has the potential to be one of this summer’s pool-side party discs.” -Relix

“Bones slaps energy and devotion into dancehall chills, steel percussion, flutes, and a wide range of stylistic approaches found on his debut album Rings, the likes of which are rarely found in an up-and-coming artist.” -Eastern Surf

“Sean Bones is an exciting new band from New York that sounds like it’s coming direct from the streets of Trenchtown.” -IFC

“…Get transported into Sean Bones’s world; a place where reggae is not just reggae but glimmering with pop gloss…and pop is not simply pop, but a raw, driven source that makes the perfect soundtrack to a New York summer.” -Baeble Music

“…What he’s made is the perfect summer soundtrack. Some songs are playful pop while others have more of a rock edge, but always with a reggae beat so infectious that you can’t help moving to the music.” -LA2DAY

“…coaxing an imaginary island breeze” -Earfarm

“…we’ve been loving the infusion of white boys doing indie-reggae. The first two singles, “Easy Street” and “Sugar In My Spoon” were brilliant, and new track, “Dancehall” continues the rub-a-dub sound.” -Future Sounds

“Sean Bones puts on the best live show to be seen in years.” -IndieRockReviews.com (Band Of The Week)

“…is like a little golden nugget.” -URB

Recorded by Jon Spencer knob-minder, Jay Braun, RINGS runs the gamut from sturdy rocksteady grooves to sly Spector-esque pop; Afrobeat bounce to reggaeton, disco, and so much more. And of course, there’s the Norah Jones connection. Sullivan spent last summer in Jamaica shooting a film opposite the Grammy award winner. Wah Do Dem – patois for “What They Do” – premiered at the LA Film Festival last June, and took home the Narrative Competition Award.

The Dodos’ Time To Die Reaches #1 On Amazon Digital Download

Announce US Fall Tour With Ruby Suns

Exclusive Vinyl Version Of Time To Die Due Out Sept 15th On Frenchkiss Records

Check it out! The Dodos new album, Time To Die, won’t be physically available until September 15th (With One Extra Track On The Vinyl Version That Comes With A Digital Download Card). However, the album went on sale digitally on Amazon MP3 and has currently reached #1.

Click Here To Stream Time To Die

With a title like Time To Die, you might think the Dodos’ third disc is their ‘mature album,’ a deadly serious undertaking punctuated with string sections and synths. Nice try kid, but you’ve got it all wrong. While indie rock’s go-to guy, Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Fleet Foxes, The Shins), hopped behind the boards this time, the Dodos’ wildly-percussive style is still centered around two key elements: the punchy percussion of Logan Kroeber and the Fahey-infused finger-picking of frontman Meric Long. Oh sure, you’ll hear a horn blast here and there, but it’s never enough to distract you from the group’s riffs and rolls.

“I’m glad that we were able to keep things simple on this record,” says Long, “Because when your band gets a little popular, there’s this tendency to say things like, ‘Let’s add an orchestra on this one!” That works for some people, but it would detract from this band.”

“Power-pop ooh-lahs, hip-rocking post-punk backbeats, and sleek guitar fingerings.” Spin Magazine

“Swirling, elegiac punk.” Dazed & Confused Magazine UK

“Honestly, what’s not to love? ” NME

“Swooooon”  Vice Magazine

After debuting on Speak n Spell Records in 2006 with the bristling Shaky Hands EP, Cut Off Your Hands quickly set stages and airwaves on fire across Australia and beyond. And with steady attention to touring and the production of melodic, musical gems their avid fan base and the cavalcade of media hyperbole has only continued to grow.

With their nationwide billing on 2007’s Laneway Festival and jaunts to Los Angeles, SXSW and New York really getting the ball rolling, it was, tellingly, the band’s first visit to London that would prove their watershed moment.Having been bewitched by the band in Texas, the lovesick indie-maven Steve Lamacq (hosting John Peel’s old show on BBC6) wasted no time in pulling them into his Maida Vale studios for a live performance when he knew they were in town. All of a sudden the boys from the antipodes were a bright pin punched on the British musical ‘map’, and as a consequence, their remaining shows were rammed full of hungry industry folk.

It was also while in London that the group, through various channels and the snowballing momentum, found themselves working with ex-Suede guitarist and Producer de jour, Bernard Butler, for the first time. Their second EP, Blue on Blue, being the fruit of their labours. While the recording’s lead tracks, ‘Still Fond’ and ‘Oh Girl’, settled quickly into the higher echelon of the radio charts at home, things continued to move for the band abroad. For the release of their debut English 7” – the double a-side Still Fond/Closed Eyes – through vinyl-ists Fandango was followed almost overnight by the inking of a deal with 679 Recordings (home to The Streets, Mystery Jets and Death From Above 1979).

Through the heady rush of record deals, single releases and the imminent debut LP however, the group’s dedication to their first love, the live arena, never waned. Incessantly in the van, Cut Off Your Hands forged solid friendships with fans and bands alike through UK tours with the whip-smart Foals, the legendary Edwyn Collins and Florida’s Black Kids – not to mention shows with The Duke Spirit and Les Savy Fav. All this while also treading the festival circuit, playing eight shows in just three days at last year’s CMJ festival in New York before winging their way to Iceland’s epic Airwaves festival and a return to Australia to play Falls Festival and the full Australasian tour of Big Day Out – alongside Bjork, Dizzee Rascal and LCD Soundsystem.

Now based in the dynamic environs of Hackney, London, the band have finished juggling life on the road with life in the studio, (for now) having put the final coat on their debut LP ‘You and I’, with Butler once again at the helm. With such an amazing album waiting in the wings, Cut Off Your Hands couldn’t be set in a better position to win over the World’s hearts.

Right. That’s about enough of the press spiel…let’s hear what Nick Johnston – Cut Off Your Hands’ Iggy-like, whirling dervish of a front-man – has to say about Bernard, recording and the record…

“For the album we all felt Bernard was the best for our band. He just seems to understand us as a group more than most. He’s very hands-on with the pre-production, with a clear vision for how each instrument has a part to play in bringing the best out of a song.

For the first time I’ve written songs with the studio in mind, as opposed to writing for our live show. Once again, this has been just treating each song in the way that best suits the song. Bernard’s really adamant in pushing to treat each song on its merits. Some songs worked straight away, whilst others came together slowly, only sounding amazing once we put all the vocals and overdubs on.

There’s a whole lot more instrumentation on the record this time as well. BB was really keen to make a record which had points of difference to separate us from the droves of British guitar bands around right now. And we’ve taken a few more risks than usual. Bernard has taken us (as players) out of our comfort zones, deconstructing the way we think. But it’s a good, healthy thing – risk taking- because when it works out you progress. I feel that the new songs are definitely an organic progression. In that the songs from the EP Blue On Blue were completely melody based, but all fairly similar. They were bouncy and energetic. Hopefully we’ve made a LP which listens in a far more dynamic sense than the two previous EP’s.

Our pop sensibility has come lately. (While writing the record) I was listening to a lot of doo-wop – in particular Phil Spector produced groups like the Ronnettes, and the Crystals – and I’ve been obsessed with how melodically centred those old songs are. It’s what makes them still relevant and exciting to someone like me, a 23 year old, 50 years later. I also began seriously taking an interest in 1950′s artists such as Roy Orbison, Ritchie Valens and Elvis. I found that I was no longer that interested in weird sounds, or noisy groups, all I wanted to hear and recreate were beautiful vocal melodies that are calculated but appear so effortless.

We feel we’ve really matured as songwriters quite a bit since the last release, and we think that maturity is demonstrated in the depth of this record. I’m happy that Bernard has been so eager to take risks with our music, and has aimed to make a record we’ll still be listening to in years to come.”
