End of the year playlist #9- The Dodos- Fools

December 16th, 2008
I like the idea of freak-rock in theory, but I can’t bring myself to listen to bands like Animal Collective without getting bored. Dodos edit out the meandering excesses, putting the songwriting front and center, while still giving into their indulgences from time to time. That’s what I love about “Fools,” probably my favorite song of the year: Logan Kroeber and Meric Long play fast and loose, but never forget the power of a hook or melody. It’s subdued, infectious and best of all, instantly accessible.
