Both Ways Open Jaws by The Dø
Released: Nov 2011
Label: Six Degrees
The Dø have incredible ambition -- maybe too much. On the duo's sophomore album, Finnish singer Olivia Merilahti and French multi-instrumentalist Dan Levy tackle everything from glitchy dream pop ("Dust It Off") to Cardigans indie rock ("Gonna Be Sick!") to fantastical symphonics to alt-dance ("Slippery Slope") to Joanna Newsom lullabies ("Leo Leo") to ambient ("Moon Mermaids") to jazz ("No Clue") to experimental. Merilahti often seems caught in an identity crisis of her own -- sometimes she's a comforting siren, other times a spunky pixie. A little more focus may just do wonders.
