The Dodos go full triumph anthem with “Substance” from their upcoming album Carrier. We’ve already heard “Confidence” from the record and while that one displayed their ability to go from, as Amrit put it, “wholesome-then-raucous,” “Substance” is the lively middle ground where you knock out both at the same time. Stream it below.

Carrier is out 8/27 via Polyvinyl.

  1. Judging by this and “Confidence”, there’s a good chance this album might be their best since Visiter.

  2. “Anthem”.

  3. “You will forget and I will remember”? Dodos have always been sort of opaque and even-keeled, but between this and “Confidence” I’m starting to wonder if Carrier will be the emotional carpet-bombing (relatively speaking) that I’ve always hoped for from them.

    8/27 can’t come too soon.
