I don’t care what anyone else says, I personally think the new Dodos album is great. Actually, better than great. Awesome, in fact. So take *THAT*, snobby music critics, clearly *MY* opinion matters more.
For those of you who don’t know the full story, their new album Time to Die was scheduled to drop on September 15th, but it leaked and instead of bitching and complaining and fighting the inevitable, the Dodos – while still justifiably irked that this happened – embraced the situation and not only moved up the digital release date to July 28th, but also posted a full, high-quality stream of the album on TimeToDie.net. I applaud their move on this almost as much as I’m applauding their new album (and will be handing over my hard-earned cash to PURCHASE it on July 28th. As you should too.)
In the meantime, check out ‘Fables’, their first track off the album that they’re providing as a free download. 2:46 into the song I develop a huge crush on it, and by 3:33, I’m firmly in lust.
Dodos, thanks for making me swoon once again.
PS: You’re hunky. Wanna go out when you get done touring? Love, Aubs
