“If it was exciting in any way, we pursued it without hesitancy or question.”

To make Certainty Waves, their seventh album as The Dodos, guitarist Meric Long and percussionist Logan Kroeber had to forget everything they knew about what it meant to be The Dodos.

Like the duo's breakout sophomore album Visiter (which celebrates its 10-year anniversary in 2018), Certainty Waves finds The Dodos embracing the unlimited possibilities of a time when there were no preconceptions of what the band should sound like. Questions like whether the band needed to be more than just “acoustic guitar and drums,” and just what exactly the ratio should be of acoustic vs. electric guitar suddenly took a backseat to the realization that so much emphasis was mistakenly being put on form rather than spirit.

Perhaps not surprisingly, this epiphany occurred while the band was re-learning Visiter for a show in which they were to perform the record in its entirety. https://www.facebook.com/dodosmusic/

The Dodos - The Surface [OFFICIAL AUDIO]

We Are Not a Glum Lot is a post/experimental/rock trio from Colorado Springs Colorado. The group consists of Zac Blum on Bass, Reggie Thompson on Drums, and Singer/Guitarist Sam Erickson. The group originally formed in high school, quickly bonding over similar tastes in music. The band quickly generated buzz in their home town shortly after their formation due to their young age juxtaposed with their musical prowess. In 2012, the group was named "Best Indie-Rock Band" by the Colorado Springs Independent." Their style is often said to be a modern take on the Art Rock sound of the late 80's and 90's. The group cites Modest Mouse, Foals, Explosions in the Sky, the Smiths, and the Strokes to be some of their main influences. With youth and the skill-set of musicians exponentially older than them working in their favor, the potential for the band seems almost endless.
