You might know Martin Dosh as that guy from Minneapolis who plays drums with Andrew Bird, but don’t peg him simply as “that guy.” His newest (and fourth) official Dosh full -length, Wolves And Wishes, is an amazing potpourri of disparate musical themes smashed and stretched into a mesmerizing fusion of instrumental hip-hop, electro-pop jams, and more. Maybe like the books without the whole found sounds folktronica angle or perhaps a little like a stutter-less Four Tet. On Wolves And Wishes Dosh gets contributions from friends like Odd Nosdam, Bonnie Prince Billy, and (yes) the aforementioned Bird. It all adds up to a densely textured album that melds the blips & bleeps and experimental/ambient nature of some IDM with propulsive hip hop beats and almost-jazzy and new-agey indie rock to give us something that is playful and melodic. It’s also varied and off-kilter enough to always keep us on our toes even though we sorta know what’s coming next (or not).
