Dodos are wired for sound with new rock album and tour.
Time To Die is produced by Phil Ek, a man who has also helped Fleet Foxes and The Shins develop their distinctive sound, with new recruit Keaton Snyder joining original duo Meric Long (guitar) and Logan Kroeber (percussion).
Snyder specialises in the vibraphone, Long explaining: "It's pretty crazy and loud and if you put it through some effects, you can make it sound like a guitar or synthesizer. It still has that element of something you're hitting, though, which is central to how Logan and I play our instruments."
As to the album Long says: "I knew we wanted to make a rock record. Being an acoustic band - primarily at least - sort of works against the idea but Phil's production showcased that side of the band."
