→   San Franciso indie rockers The Dodos release their sixth studio album, Individ, on January 27th, 2015 via Polyvinyl Records. According to a press release, the duo recorded the nine–track effort immediately following sessions for 2013’s Carrier, holing up at San Francisco’s Tiny Telephone studio alongside producers Jay and Ian Pellicci.
→   The press release adds that the LP is a return to the “stripped down” and “aggressive” approach of 2008’s Visiter. In a statement, singer Meric Long said, “The songs came together easily, there was not a lot questioning, just moving ahead with the feeling that we were on the right track. We were freed up to do whatever came naturally.”
→   He added, “The songs relied heavily on the movement that occurs between just two instruments, guitar and drums. From the first take of the first song we tracked, things sounded huge and that set the tone for the entire thing.” ::
