The Dodos: New Video, New Pornographers Tour
If this spring weather isn't enough to make you want to get the hell outta Dodge, check out the new video from SF indie pop stars the Dodos. The visuals for the single "Longform" encourage as much of an escape as the lyrics (in which Meric Long shouts "Go!" and sings of being free to leave everything behind). The clip is a blur of what looks like Highway 1 imagery: iconic Big Sur bridges, cliffside farmland, and sparkling ocean vistas flash by in a clip as a little green car hugs those scenic curves.
"Longform" could inspire many a road trip, while the band itself extends its tour of American freeways. After playing Bonnaroo in June, the Dodos will open for The New Pornographers on the Canadian pop act's gigs throughout their country and ours.
