New Dodos Video - Fools

Here's the awesome new video for "Fools" from what is probably my favorite album of the year so far, The Dodos' Visiter (via French Kiss). If you have never heard The Dodos, expect acoustic guitar, vocals, and percussion, but do not, I repeat DO NOT, assume anything about their sound based on the instruments they play. The amount of energy and enthusiasm that is expressed through such minimal instrumentation is out of this world. You will not be bored, and you will not be able to stop listening to this album. The video is cool, with lots of close ups of hands and feet at work and lots of quick cuts. It fits the song nicely although I wish I could see more of Logan Kroeber's frenetic, nearly cymbal-less drumming and perhaps a bit less strumming.

I can't stop at just this song. Visiter is absolutely brimming with wonderful songs just like "Fools". My favorite segment of the album are the back to back duo of girl songs, "Jodi" and then "Ashley". They flow together wonderfully and really bridge the album together well. Too often I am really excited by the first 3 or 4 songs of an album only to find it lose momentum halfway through. Not the case here. Check out "Jodi" below and keep an eye out for, hopefully, some local tour dates later this summer or early fall.
