DOSH SET TO RELEASE FIFTH ALBUM, TOMMY, APRIL 13
On April 13 Dosh (Martin Dosh) will release his fifth album on Anticon Records, titled Tommy.
In setting out to create this album Dosh had two goals in mind. First: Get loose. 2008's Wolves & Wishes took a step in this direction by way of its guests - freewheelers like Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Odd Nosdam - but Dosh records are well-known for their impeccable arrangements. So much so that Andrew Bird used Wolves' "First Impossible" as the rhythmic backbone for a song on last year's critically acclaimed Noble Beast LP.
Dosh's second goal seemed to be in direct conflict with the first: To conceive yet thicker terrain for his already seething soundscapes. More drums. More vocals. And new to the Dosh catalog, lots of low end. Against all odds, Tommy skirts critical mass but stays organic, is never overwrought, and miraculously avoids becoming cluttered. Instead, this unique brand of maximalist, rhythm-driven post-rock sweeps lilting beauty, serious beats and even airy moments into its comely whirlwind.
