The Dodos成立於2005年,是一隊來自美國三藩市的,由主音及結他手Meric Long及鼓手Logan Kroeber所組成的獨立民謠樂隊。
樂隊初期名字為Dodobird,在西岸實驗鼓手Logan Kroeber加入後才改名為The Dodos,兩人臭味相投一見如故,隨即組成樂隊。The Dodos在2008年推出首張大碟,名為 “Beware of the Maniacs”,並在同年推出另一張大碟 “Visiter”。在2009年灌錄大碟 "Time to Die" 時Long及Kroeber邀請了電顫琴手Keaton Snyder的協助及Phil Ek作製作人,同時亦覺得此組合能擦出更多有趣的火花。2011年製作大碟 “No Color” 時亦邀請了Neko Case作協助歌手並繼續沿用 “Visiter” 時的創作團隊。

The Dodos are an indie folk band which formed in San Francisco, California, United States in 2005. They consist of Meric Long (vocals, guitar) and Logan Kroeber (drums).
Originally formed in 2006 as Dodobird by multi-instrumentalist Meric Long, unpredictable San Francisco indie rock duo the Dodos acquired their new moniker with the arrival of Logan Kroeber, a fellow West Coast artist whose penchant for experimental drumming and progressive metal melded perfectly with Long's interest in West African Ewe drumming and country blues fingerpicking. The Dodos released their debut album, Beware of the Maniacs, that same year independently, followed by Visiter in 2008. Long and Kroeber added electric vibraphonist Keaton Snyder to the fold and collaborated with producer Phil Ek on 2009's Time to Die, which found the trio exploring a more fleshed-out sound. For 2011's No Color, the band recruited Neko Case as a supporting vocalist and returned to its Visiter-era approach.
