Dodos - "Confidence"

Soft Metals - "Lenses"

Soft Metals have just announced their upcoming LP Lenses. Taking bits of influences from early -'70s synth inovators Chris Carter and Klaus Schulze, Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall have taken the direction of this record to the dancefloor. You can download the first single, "Lenses," below.

When it came time for The Dodos to begin writing their fifth LP, Carrier, singer/guitarist Meric Long wanted to start over. The uncertainty of the band's trajectory as well as the passing of guitarist Chris Reimer brought about a reassessment of things within the band, and in particular Long's songwriting. In need of a different vantage point, Long began writing words before music for the first time, enveloping himself in silence rather than sound. When it came time to set these lyrics to music, Long started writing with only his electric guitar in hand -- another first. "Confidence" is available for stream and download below.
