TRULY GREAT NEW MUSIC: The Dodos "Visiter"

So I didn't get a chance to make it over to SXSW this year, but that doesn't mean I'm not up on all the buzz (I read blogs too, ;-) ). One of the more talked about bands were San Francisco's, The Dodos. Now normally, I have at least heard of the band before they garner any SXSW attention, but that just wasn't the case this time. Maybe I'm getting old, or maybe I read too many blogs & listen to too much music (is that possible?). Not that it really matters, I'm just surprised that I wasn't listening to them sooner. Their music is certainly right up my alley: drum-heavy freak/folk/psychedelic housing some really great lyrics. I've only been listening to the album for the last 6 hours, and I haven't skipped a particular track once. A sign (in my opinion) of a truly great ALBUM. A rarity these days, an entire album that I completely dig from the first song to the last. So it's probably no surprise that The Dodos album, "Visiter", is highly recommended. They're playing Lenny's in Atlanta next week on 3/26, so at least now I'm not SO heartbroken about not attending SXSW.

"Visiter" out now via Frenchkiss Records, and you can pick up a copy from Insound, eMusic, or locally at Criminal Records.
