I discovered, and got a mad crush on THE DODOS from San Fransisco through the fab Sydney blog Oceans Never Listen who have done a thorough review of their latest record called Visiter. Its the duo's second album and at times they plough a similar field to Animal Collective, sharing their freewheeling, spirited approach to pop music. Or you could even favourably compare their sound to Split Enz, The Shins, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah or even Beirut, but without the Baltic flavours and with the bare-bones intensity that sometimes only a duo can muster.
You can hear some tunes including lead single "Fools" at Hype Machine and find out more about The Dodos and the new album at their website.
