Dowsing Anemone with Copper Tongue is the second full-length album by Kayo Dot, released on Robotic Empire Records in 2006. The album received high praise from Pitchfork, Lambgoat, and Sputnikmusic, the last of whom named it the #2 album of 2006.

Shortly before the recording of the album, longtime collaborator and former maudlin of the Well member Sam Gutterman left to pursue outside projects, and was replaced by Tom Malone. It was the group's first and only release on the Robotic Empire label. The group embarked on a lengthy and highly successful tour after the album's release, which would be the last tour in which the band was mostly made up of former motW members, as Greg Massi left shortly after the tour to pursue solo projects, eventually forming the band Baliset. Ryan McGuire and Forbes Graham also left after the tour.

All songs and lyrics written by Toby Driver.
