The Dodos: “Fools”

I removed the “in the iPod” section of the old site. Will it return? Who knows. But if it were still there and I still updated it, you better bet that the Dodos’ Visiter would hold a spot. It’s some great alt-folk that sounds like how a Take Away Show looks.

MP3: The Dodos – Fools
I’ve got to say that I’m really in favor of this recent musical trend. Blame Beirut, Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear or whoever you like, but the fact is that weirdo folk music is now something to be blasted in public rather than hidden in private. The Dodos sound like all those aforementioned bands a bit, yean, but they’re so much more. The percussion reminds me of a cross between Johnny Greenwood’s “Oil!” from the There Will be Blood soundtrack and Animal Collective’s “Fickle Cycle.”

Dodos tour dates after the jump. I guess they let the cat out of the bag that they’ll be playing our second annual Hot Freaks! day party at SXSW. See you there!

Just a reminder: you only have one more day to enter to win a Panda Bear-designed New Era cap from the FADER!
