The Dodos - ”Sleep”
What’s great about No Color is the upbeat energy that emerges from each song. It’s toe-tappin’ and head-bobbin’. However, the Dodos’s sound is more complex in this album, taking advantage of more than just Meric Long’s signature voice and Logan Kroeber’s unique approach to drumming. I often forget they are just a twosome putting together these tracks.
I had a lot of trouble picking between writing about “Sleep” or the album’s single, “Black Night.” But what Sleep offers is a familiar sound and more lyrical genius to current enthusiasts of The Dodos while the ability to hook new listeners. (Plus, Black Night is available for free off of Amazon.)
