They are known for using an alternate instrumental approach. Logan Kroeber plays on a drum kit without a bass drum, playing often on the rims of the drums, and also uses a tambourine taped to his shoe. During live performances they have Keaton Snyder playing a vibraphone, a drum and two cymbals placed on each other (like a hihat). Meric Long plays mainly acoustic and semi-acoustic guitars during performances, but he also owns a Springtime and a Tafelberg drum guitar built by Yuri Landman. Either way its a fun band to watch.
Keep your eye out for these guys moving forward. I have a feeling its not the last time you will hear of The Dodos.
