The Dodos

The Dodos are the duo Meric Long and Logan Kroeber.

Originating in San Francisco, Logan is known for his multiple drumming techniques while Meric fills in with guitars and vocals.

No Color, their fourth album comes out next week on the Ides of March.

“Black Night” is the new single.

Wavves

Wavves

Wavves, (spelled with the double “v’s”), are apostles of noise-pop, a niche of alternative rock that features the melodies and song-structures of pop music combined with distorted instrumentations and elements of white noise.

With Wavves it’s warped, lo-fi intensity.

We featured Wavves here last year. With a new album forthcoming, leader Nathan Williams has posted a free download on his blog.

“Horse Shoes” is the Song of the Day.

The Raveonettes

The Raveonettes

The Danish duo Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo are The Raveonettes.

Together since 2001, they infuse male/female harmonies, melody, and a bit of noise with unexpected somber lyrics.

Raven in the Grave, their fifth album, will be released in April.

Here is a new dreamier side of The Raveonettes as we hear in “Forget That You’re Young”, a free download from the album.

In Sharin’s own words: “It’s dark but not bleak, like the single minded determination caused by crisis that is not quite hope but just as powerful. It’s the perfect winter soundtrack just in time for spring.”

Perfect indeed.

tUnE-yArDs

tUnE-yArDs

tUnE-yArDs, spelled as you see it, is the music of Merrill Garbus.

Originally from New England, she now resides in Oakland.

Her 2009 debut BiRd-BrAiNs introduced us to her most unusual musically stylings and now continues with the song “Bizness” a free download from the forthcoming album whokill.

Uniquely fascinating.

Destroyer

Destroyer

Dan Bejar is best known for his work with The New Pornographers, but he has released far more material with the band Destroyer.

Some consider Destroyer to his solo project, but Bejar insists that in spite of the revolving lineup, Destroyer is a band.

For those unfamiliar with Destroyer, the music does not sound like the name, which only makes Bejar that much more intriguing.

Kaputt is the ninth album by Destroyer and the poignant title track is the Song of the Day.

SVIIB

Interpol is currently on tour with School of Seven Bells (SVIIB) and Matthew Dear.

All three have been featured here in the past. The “Search” button above will take you to their music.

On the Interpol website there is a free Tour EP of all three bands. Included is Interpol’s “Lights”, a pre-release free download.

I’m particularly fond of SVIIB’s “Dust Devil”.
