    One might not believe this was the same band that came to notoriety with Visiter almost 7 years ago. This LP draws on the ever expanding palette of sounds The Dodos have built without dwelling too long in any single place. This record works tirelessly to blend the pop sound common to all Dodos' records with the darker and more distorted sound found in post- Chris Reimer releases.

    Individ challenges its listeners to discover the elusive melodies that reside below the surface, even though the clattering arrangements and oddly oblique atmospherics might prove to be a distraction.

    This is a fraught and definite collection of the uttermost importance. For the first time in their career, the end of the album doesn't feel like the extinction of Dodos, but instead an invigoration.
