Psychedelic folk pop trio from San Francisco

Originally formed in 2006 under the moniker Dodobird as a one man acoustic act, Meric Long would gig around San Francisco playing folky guitar with a combination of loops an ambient keyboards. After exploring percussion and rumming, Meric got turned onto country blues and sought to create a band where the drumming could be a centre role and help bring out the syncopated rhythms coming out of the acoustic guitar. Today the members of the band are except Meric also Santa Cruz transplant Logan Kroeber and Joe Haener of the now unfortunately defunct Gris Gris who joined the band at the beginning of 2008.

The Dodos debuted with album “Beware of the Maniacs”. As they became a sensation for independent audience soon, their second album “Visiter” was published by New York label Frenchkiss in 2008. The Dodos are now coming to introduce their new album “Time to Die” that was released in August 2009. Their music is influenced by bluegrass or country but also by Elliot Smith, Iron & Wine or current „weird“ singers as Devendra Banhart, Sufjan Stevens or for example Animal Collective. But being very creative and using their music fantasies a lot, The Dodos are the real original that belongs to the best of current alternative music today.
