Interview: The Dodos – 9/5/2013


The+Dodos+thedodos          The Dodos released their new and well-received album, Carrier, on August 27th. After an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman a week later, they were back in California and ready to start three months of touring. The first official show to kick off the tour was here in Sacramento on September 5th at Harlow’s Restaurant and Nightclub. Before the show, I was able to catch up with lead guitar and vocals man, Meric Long. We discussed the creative process behind recording their new album, a bit of the band’s personal history, and the road ahead. To listen to the whole interview, use the soundcloud player below and stream.

The sound those three guys can make on stage is quite impressive. The Dodos put on one hell of a show, so make sure to check out The Dodos website to see if they’ll be coming through your town. While you’re at it, give their single, Confidence, a listen. You can buy the new album, Carrier, in their online store.

You can listen to my show, The Beat Hour, live on Tuesdays from 6-7pm on KSSU.com. I play today’s best alternative & indie music, interviews with bands, and the occasional giveaway. Tune in!
