The L.A.-based Dios has released a free two-song single, courtesy of Buddyhead, exhibiting its compositional range. On “I Feel Finite,” tinny guitars segue into a bouquet of Flaming Lips-esque psychedelic keyboard peals and a drum beat that will get your toes tapping, even if you can’t make out the words; Joel Morales sounds like Ben Gibbard crooning in his car with the windows rolled up. “Puttin It Down” is more buoyant and puckish, like the Comas with an articulate Beck manning the vocals, displaying Dios’ alternate spirited-folk temperament.
