"You're a victim of your cautiousness"

The Dodos

It's been an unseasonably cold and rainy spring in New York. I ran out on my lunch hour today and trekked three blocks without an umbrella, in need of a little musical retail therapy to cure my seasonal blahs. Among the albums I bought was The Dodos' "Visiter." I like it. It sounds a lot like the way I felt prior to buying it--prickly, melancholy, and a little wounded. Think skeletal acoustic melodies, with an Animal Collective-like freneticness, but minus the squawking.

Winter - The Dodos
