Dosh - Wolves And Wishes | A Jam Session of Sundry Timbres
Album: Wolves And Wishes
Release Date: May 14th, 2008
Some people are simply born to play music. To some extent, the language appears to be innate to them.
Such is the case with Minneapolis-bred Martin Dosh. On his fourth full-length to date, the multi-instrumentalist (machine)—perhaps best known for his significant role in shaping Andrew Bird's 2007 album, Armchair Apocrypha—churns out a stirring mishmash of experimentalism.
In Dosh's virtuosic world, notes are merely toys. He manipulates and arranges them to make it sound as though his band consists of an ensemble—when in actuality it essentially consists of him. Ultimately, however, Wolves And Wishes relies on a certain synergy between Dosh and a vast array of collaborators (Andrew Bird, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Fog, Odd Nosdam, David King, Mike Lewis and Jeremy Ylvisaker).
