Meric Long of The Dodos Presents: FAN Favorites

He’s best known as the singer and fleet-fingered acoustic strummer for Bay Area indie-folk favorites The Dodos, but with his new project FAN, Meric Long ventures into the realm of experimental synth-pop. FAN recently released its first single (“Fire” b/w “Disappear”), with a full-length on the way via Polyvinyl; to whet your appetite, he’s compiled this Dowsers playlist of the post-punk icons, jazz legends, and videogame themes that inspired it.
