((The Dodos)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

The Dodos are a somewhat psych-y and somewhat folk-y pop duo out of San Francisco (imagine that!) made up of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber. Together, they create warm up-tempo songs structured around Kroeber's dynamic drumming skills and Long's rapid-fire acoustic guitar finger-picks and strums. The Dodos employ rhythms that are often played at a swift speed, but Long's warm vocals keeps these songs sounding more pop-pleasant than punk-rock.

This optimistic music is good for driving if you're fortunate to have access to a cloudless day without traffic and a convertible (if not, simply rolling down the windows will do, too).

The band signed to NYC's Frenchkiss Records for their second album, Visiter, and have recently toured with Akron/Family and Les Savy Fav. Fans of Panda Bear & Animal Collective should definitely check out The Dodos.
