Every week NPR Music writer and editor Stephen Thompson brings us a track he's been listening to. This week it's The Dodo's "Confidence."

The track is on the San Francisco band's new album "Carrier." Thompson says The Dodos get a lot of the drive in their music from their drummer.

"One thing about The Dodos' music is that the band's got a great drummer," Thompson told Here & Now. "His name's Logan Kroeber, and they use him to tremendous effect. 'Confidence' accelerates gradually but very surely, with a forceful but slightly off-kilter kick that really grabs you. It's the kind of thing where you keep banging the desk in time with the song and you don't even realize it."
