Dead cool


PSYCHEDELIC indie folk outfit The Dodos are not as rubbish as their band name, album artwork and spelling might suggest.
On first impressions coming across the group's bashed up acoustic sound is like trying to make conversation with a hobo.
However, the ramshackle groove takes hold, and it turns out you and said down-and-out are actually getting on like a house on fire.
Because some of the San Franciscan duo's tracks on Visiter, the band's second album and UK debut, such as Jodi and Fools, are beyond their dishevelled demeanor cunningly crafted pop nuggets.
The Dodos have landed over here - and don't be surprised if they take off.
