WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): The Dodos “Black Night”

The Dodos’ video for “Black Night” is as dark as the music itself is light, and the San Francisco band’s recent Frenchkiss Records release, No Color, carries that movement and brightness to it naturally, thanks to a percussion-centric composition compliments of Logan Kroeber and brassy finger-picking guitar contributions from Meric Long. No Color has received lots of positive press, especially in regards to roping in powerhouse vocalist and alt-country/pop favorite, Neko Case, to build up the band’s already intense pop sound. The Dodos come to Milwaukee to play Turner Hall Ballroom this Sunday, June 5th, alongside brand-new Dead Oceans Records signees, Gauntlet Hair.
