The Dodos - Time To Die LP

Pre-orders are up for "Time to Die", the new album by The Dodos. I can't state enough how much I LOVE The Dodos and what I've heard of the new record sofar sounds truly amazing. You can stream the entire album over at www.timetodie.net/, and upon doing so, all doubts will be taken away whether or not the band could make a proper follow-up to their breakthrough album 'Visiter'. Upon ordering, you get an immediate download of the album and receive a free 11" x 17" poster (while supplies last). Now isn't that nice?

Strangely enough, you can't order directly from Frenchkiss Records, but only from Insound at the moment. Also, I can't quite grasp why "Time To Die" is only $15,99, the whole $3 cheaper than 'Visiter', but oh well, what can one do....Order at http://www.insound.com/

By the way, here's what Insound has to say: With a title like "Time to Die", you might think the Dodos third disc is their mature album, a deadly serious undertaking punctuated with string sections and synths. Nice try kid, but you've got it all wrong. While indie rock's go-to guy, Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Fleet Foxes, The Shins), hopped behind the boards this time, the Dodos wildly-percussive style is still centered around two key elements: the punchy percussion of Logan Kroeber and the Fahey-infused finger-picking of frontman Meric Long. Oh sure, you'll hear a horn blast here and there, but its never enough to distract you from the groups riffs and rolls.
