It's been just over two years since we last heard The Dodos distinguisable rattle in their most recent full-length release No Color; an album that contributed to my own personal music appreciation term paper due to its frenetic and unique uses of percussion. Today, we're finally given our first sample of what is to be the follow-up to their 2011 release, their fifth studio LP Carrier. The album's opening single "Confidence" (below), begins with recognizable marching persistence, and it builds into the rambunctious, yet precise guitar and drum race that the duo of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber (respectively) have developed into their own trademark.
Carrier is due out August 27th on Polyvinyl. Watch the album teaser trailer here.
Watch The Dodos back in 2008 live at The Spiegeltent, on Baeblemusic.
