No Color by The Dodos
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Frenchkiss Records
Sans vibraphonist Keaton Snyder, who appeared on Time to Die, The Dodos are back as a duo. It's quite amazing what depth of noise just two guys can produce, and that may be because they sound like they're constantly chasing each other: Logan Kroeber works like a full drumline just to set the pace for Meric Long, who completely attacks his guitar, his fast fingers picking like mad until his acoustic nearly buzzes in defeat. Long's McCartney-esque croons and guest Neko Case's supple harmonies help harness all that energy, especially on standouts like "Companions" and "Don't Try and Hide It."
