Carrier - POLYVINYL
FILTER Grade: 89%
By Jeffrey Brown on August 26, 2013
Carrier finds The Dodos continuing to refine their music with a new focus on electric guitar, while simultaneously returning to the balance of Meric Long’s soft melodic vocals and acoustic guitar fingerpicking punctuated by Logan Kroeber’s drumming that defined their earlier sound. Less sonically aggressive than 2011’s No Color, the lyrics on Carrier stand as the most meaningful in their catalog, making their newest album stand once again as the band’s best yet.
