The Dodos by Jeremy Harris

It's kind of exciting watching the Dodos hit their stride this year. After gigging incessantly for as long as I can remember, the band has released a record, Visiter, that's earned Meric Long and Logan Kroeber rave reviews. A small sampling from recent weeks: Spin made the Dodos their artist of the day ; Rolling Stone gave the band positive marks in print, and Pitchfork elevated the group to "best new music status," saying in its review that "Visiter ends up being one of the most welcoming (and welcome) records of 2008 so far." With the Frenchkiss label at their side, it seems that 2008 is shaping up to be the year of the Dodos. -- Jennifer Maerz
