Visiter by San Francisco band The Dodos is their second full length and first for Frenchkiss. Originally formed in 2006 under the moniker Dodobird as a one man acoustic act, Meric Long would gig around SF playing folky guitar w/ a combination of loops and ambient keyboards. Having already studied West African Ewe drumming, Meric got turned onto country blues fingerpicking and sought to create ... Read more in Amazon's The Dodos Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Fragile, Furious and Fun 13 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Dodos make a lot of good noise for a small ensemble.

The relatively simply constructed ten songs on their new album 'Time To Die'
belie a canny and elusive compositional style. Big stuff from little things.

From relatively meagre instrumental resources ( Meric Long - Guitars,
Logan Kroeber - Percussion and Keaton Snyder - Vibraphone) the band
create an amazing array of different moods and musical textures.

The warm hippie-heaven opening of 'Small Deaths', with its delightfully
naive melody, chiming chords and lush vocal harmonies, opens a door
to a singularly magical musical landscape.
The impulse to pass through and join them on the journey is irresistible.

'Longform' with its driving rhythm and somewhat harder edge creates a
whirlwind of sound around the strong central vocal performance;
those dense close harmonies now becoming a distinctive and defining feature.

'The Strums' too manages to manufacture a massive sound from the
smallest compositional building blocks. The result here is magnificent.
A lovely tune segueing into a luminously magical central section full
of light and shade and exhilarating optimism.

The good-natured honesty of this music is never less than delightful.

The playful craziness of the spluttering opening to 'Two Medicines'
settles down quickly into one of the album's most powerful musical ideas.
The taut complexity of the arrangement is well-delivered by all concerned.

'Troll Nacht' is suffused with moonlight and a strange, almost Autumnal ambience.

'A Time To Die' is the haunting and very moving emotional axis of this fine album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you! 28 July 2009
By Rae Mcsween - Published on Amazon.com

The daily deals at Amazon are a terrific way to expand your musical horizons, people! Part of the point of them is to expand the fan base of some of the lesser known bands and genres. If you don't like this type of music, ok, but don't complain that the deals aren't what you want. I know that I, for one, get a bit irritated when there are too many mainstream offerings...I never buy them because if I wanted to listen to that sort of thing, all I have to do is turn on the radio and it is repeated constantly anyway.

As another reviewer said, stop complaining because you want more Nickelback.

Ok, as for the actual album, I like! Poppy, but not electronically so. Definitely worth the reduced price, and I'm now interested in their other stuff. I'm a huge fan of DCFC, Stars, Blitzen Trapper, Iron & Wine, Bell X1...get the idea? No, this isn't completely the same as any of those, but it fits well with the other things I like, if that helps.

So, have a listen. Expand your horizons!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another solid release from the Dodos 28 July 2009
By I. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
I've only listened through once so far, but it's already a solid album (I felt compelled to review quickly due to the slew of negative comments that popped up here very quickly). The Dodos have a very unique style -- and this definitely sounds like a lot of their work to date. But this album showcases a solid step in new directions as they experiment with many new sonic ideas without betraying their styles that both define them and have brought them their ever-growing success.

I have listened to their album "Visiter" a ton, and I love it, although it did take a few listens to really grab me. "Beware of the Maniacs" is a recent addition to my music library, but is quickly racking up plays. "Time to Die" looks to do the same. If you have liked the Dodos in the past, or have been at all curious about them, give this album a shot. Like other Dodos music it may not blow you away immediately, but give it some time to ferment in your system. They are a very good band.

Also, if you get the chance to see them live, do it. They put on an excellent show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing 28 July 2009
By Gone Fishing - Published on Amazon.com
I have to admit I have only listened to Time To Die once but I enjoy the music. It might end up as a 4* for me but I felt like I needed to chime in as a balance for the negative reviews. I applaud Amazon for some variety in their daily deals. The sample snipets from the songs don't do the Dodos justice. I hope people will listen to the songs in their entirety before jumping to conclusions. The syncopated rhythms might not be very conducive to a quick 15 second sample but these songs are wonderful. I look forward to exploring and digging deeper with Time To Die and perhaps looking into more of the Dodos' catalog.

If you haven't listened to the Dodos, really listened, then you really should! There are some amazing guitar and drums here.

*Also, please don't complain and rate poorly simply because your favorite album wasn't picked today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid follow-up to Visiter 28 July 2009
By M. Koch - Published on Amazon.com
After listening to the fantastic songwriting and extraordinary musical skills of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber on Visiter, it was definitely going to be tough to release another album that could live up to that standard. I'm really enjoying this new set of tunes. The production is a bit more slick, but not detrimental to the songs. If you like folky indie-ish pop-rock... oh I don't know... it's good. I'd pay full price for this release. The fact that it's the Deal of the Day is just icing on the cake. Give it a listen and I hope you enjoy it. And if you do, pony up the dough to get a copy of Visiter.
