So after the nowadays-unavoidable album leak a couple weeks ago, The Dodos streamed their new record, Time To Die in its entirety at timetodie.net so we could all enjoy the goods without the nagging guilt, and all leave the world a better place than we found it.
Well if you liked what you heard there, today you can grab the album for only $2.99 at Amazon. I know, the good news never ends. But hurry, the deal sounds like it's only good until next Tuesday. So you know, get on that.
As far as the record goes, it's a good one. I hadn't gotten around to spinning it until today, but on first listen it sounds like they've drawn a good line between what they've already mastered and what they aim to. They've largely traded in the cling and clatter of Visiter for a more mature and expansive sound, and it actually suits them. I think I might even like this one a bit more... we'll see how it fares on repeat listens.
In the meantime, you can:
Buy it here. (for only $2.99!)
