The Dodos - "Black Night"

Never hire a vibraphonist. That's the lesson San Francisco's Dodos seem to have learned after the disappointment of their blandly received third album Time To Die. The absence of hired-then-fired vibraphone player Keaton Snyder means the Dodos are back as a duo for their fourth release, No Color, and the album's first single "Black Night" suggests all is well again in the world of these manic minimalists. The duo will, however, receive some help on the album: red-haired alt-country goddess and New Pornographer Neko Case reportedly will add her considerable vocal chops to half the album's songs. Something tells me people won't have any trouble finding the purchase link to No Color—due out March 14th.
