Melody+Rhythm+Shouting=Album of The Year!,
This review is from: Visiter (Audio CD)
Easily the best album released in '08. Lyrically a bit banal but otherwise highly complex, exciting music. The rhythmic design on this album is where it really shines; it's probably the most exciting music, in terms of rhythm, that i've heard outside of Fusion era Miles davis or talking heads. The interplay between drums and guitar is stunning, the offbeat rhythms impossible not to dance to.
Impressive folk guitar noodlings, endlessly hummable melodies, clattering drums, eccentric production; The dodos are young, excitable and hugely talented. One of the warmest most fun albums in existence. Buy it!
Incidentally theyre also the best live band I've ever seen. Go see them if you get the chance.
