the dodos invalid

The Dodos just released Carrier last year, but they've got more songs up their sleeves - they just confirmed plans for a sixth studio LP, Invalid, out January 27th. You can year its lovely first single "Competition" now - built up on a simple, looped guitar riff and driving drum pattern, it lets frontman Meric Long's earnest vocals take center stage amidst plenty of woozy distortion. Check it out below while you wait for the rest of the LP, then peruse the tracklist - you'll have no trouble putting this song on repeat; it's tailor-made for driving in the snow.
