Dodo Bird (Meric Long)

The dodo's sound is shaped by the marriage of two periods in songwriter Meric Long's musical history: playing in rock/metal bands growing up in the suburbs, and playing and listening to old delta blues records in his post adolescent years. In the fall of 2002, Meric opened up for country blues guitarist Paul Curreri, who turned him on to the country blues style of finger-picking guitar, via Mississippi John Hurt, Leadbelly, and later John Fahey. Meric adopted this style of guitar into his repertoire, meshing it with noise, electronic sounds, and loops that he had developed in his earlier days. In order to add syncopated percussion to accent the rhythmic patterns in his finger picking, Meric began playing with Logan Kroeber in the fall of 2005, whose background in Santa Cruz heavy metal band Entragian made for a perfect fit.

2006 saw two releases from Meric Long, debut Dodo Bird and follower Beware Of The Maniacs. If you like Sufjan Stevens, Iron & Wine, Bright Eyes or Elliot Smith, then you should check Dodo Bird. They're available via Meric Long's official page. Highly Recommended!
