Meric Long and Logan Kroeber formed The Dodos in early 2006. Shortly afterwards Long released a separate solo album titled Dodo Bird. Long and Kroeber then toured intermittently between July and September 2006, until the release of their first joint album Beware of the Maniacs at one of their shows. They continued touring until February 2007. In 2007 they were signed by Frenchkiss Records and they released their second album Visiter in 2008, which received the prestigious "best new music" at Pitchfork Media. A 17-venue national tour has followed during March and April this year.

Described by the Houston Press as:
"San Francisco-based singer/guitarist of psych-folk-pop duo Dodos hones the callings of free-spirited, unhinged acts like Animal Collective, the music he makes with drummer Logan Kroeber embodies a spirit of its own. Long's light, ephemeral finger play on the acoustic guitar is fast, warm and focused, resonating under his refined lyrical hopscotch... Add Kroeber's stomping tom-and-tambourine backbeat, which recalls the Velvet Underground's Moe Tucker, and that amounts to one shit-kicking good time."

You can listen to an MP3 called Jodi from the latest album Visiter here.
