The Dodos – No Color Album Review

I can’t help but want The Dodos to do well; they’re from my hometown, after all, and nothing’s cooler than picking up a copy of the SF Chronicle and reading “Local Band Makes Good.” After their initial success with 2008’s Visiter, the band gave San Franciscans another reason to be proud and smug.

Foreign Born – “Early Warnings” Music Video

New video for Foreign Born’s “Early Warnings.” In its ’80s-esque summery treatment, random plants, flowers, and animals are identified almost scientifically, but I don’t think any of them actually exist in our current world (or at least that’s what a thorough Google search of terms like “Pesacov’s Umber” told me). And although my childhood wasn’t...Read...
