So it sounds like Phil Ek convinced the Dodos to use a snare drum again. We are into it! Bring on the bombast! "Fables" is the first MP3 to surface from the San Francisco duo-cum-trio's new one, Time To Die, follow up to the still-on-the-turntable Visiter. Basically, this is the Dodos you know and love jacked up on Ek's studio steroids–in addition to the aforementioned snare, there are double-tracked guitars, shakers, bells, and friggin' vibraphone. Head to the album's website to stream a high quality version in full, and look for it online later this month and physically in August via Frenchkiss.
