Product Description

CD Description

The Dandy Warhols will release their new album This Machine , on April 23, 2012. The release, produced by The Dandy Warhols and Jeremy Sherrer, is made up of eleven songs written by Courtney Taylor-Taylor, Brent DeBoer, Zia McCabe, and guests David J (Love and Rockets, Bauhaus) and Miles Zuniga (Fastball). This Machine is the Dandy's 8th official studio album and was recorded over the course of 2011 at The Dandy Warhols rock clubhouse/entertainment megaplex/studio The Odditorium. The band recorded the album with their longtime engineer - producer Jeremy Sherrer. Taylor-Taylor describes this record as "stripped down, woody and extremely guitar centric." The album was mixed Tchad Blake who also mixed The Dandy Warhols Odditorium or Warlords of Mars and Come Down. Tchad is well known for his recent work with The Black Keys, Blitzen Trapper and Pearl Jam. The album cover for This Machine was painted by local Portland, Oregon painter Hickory Mertsching. Famed Science Fiction writer Richard Morgan penned the band s official Bio for This Machine. It s 4 short stories that do a much better job entertaining than this bullet point list. You can read the bio here. Stand out track, Autumn Carnival was co authored by Courtney Taylor Taylor and David J of Love and Rockets. About the album, Courtney says, "We've been told that it s our gothiest. I thought it was our grungiest so I'm really hoping it s a hit with goths who are...um, really outdoorsy?" The Dandy Warhols have been a band for 18 yrs, they are: Courtney Taylor-Taylor Sings and plays guitar and sometimes keyboards and percussion. Peter Holmström Plays guitar and sometimes keyboards and bass. Zia McCabe Plays keyboards and key bass and percussion and sometimes sings. Brent DeBoer Plays drums and sings and sometimes bass and guitar.

Product Description

A dire il vero non ho mai speso troppo tempo a riflettere sul reale valore dei Dandy Warhols. Almeno una cosa la penso da sempre, cioè che abbiano un nome strepitoso, il quale oltretutto riflette bene l'indole di gioco colto, il sottofondo goliardico o se preferite cazzone del loro fare musica, che ha saputo licenziare almeno due singoli strepitosi - mi riferisco ovviamente a Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth del '97 e Bohemian Like You del 2001 - ai quali devono gran parte della loro fama. Per il resto, mi sono sempre approcciato ad ogni loro nuovo album con una certa sufficienza, aspettandomi al più una misticanza divertente, strutturata su un arguto impasto di espedienti cool. Alla peggio, un carosello tra il caciarone ed il cialtrone. Finora si è sempre rivelato un approccio pregiudizialmente azzeccato. E, sapete, lo è anche per questo This Machine, nono titolo del repertorio, registrato nel loro studio personale di Portland. E' uno dei loro lavori migliori, variegato e turgido, un cabaret citazionista accattivante, ingegnoso e astuto che azzecca quasi tutte le mosse, finendo per sembrare parecchio adeguato a questi giorni di schizoide mischia di stili con l'hype freneticamente nel mirino. Così, una volta raccomandato di astenersi a quanti vanno in cerca di gravità e peso specifico, ci possiamo trastullare senza troppi scrupoli con l'art pop a cavallo tra 80's e 90s di The Autumn Carnival (gli Xtc presi nella ragnatelaBlur?), con le evanescenze Morricone tra miraggi dreamy di Don't Shoot She Cried, con la Tanita Tikaram ipnotizzata Massive Attack di Well They're Gone, col groove ciccioso e perturbato wave di Sad Vacation, col sipari

But not every band is able to consistently satisfy their fans, although they often get good publicists! Another dud from the Dandys!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tinkering with This Machine 26 Sep 2012
By Mark Thomas VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first time I have ever hesitated before purchasing a Dandy Warhols CD. After initially being impressed by Odditorium and Earth to the Dandy Warhols, both quickly became nauseating listens, and neither stands up to the back-catalogue of excellence from Portland's best-known rock introspectors. With that in mind, I approached this album with what is, for me, a rare caution.

This Machine possesses a woody, hollow, percussive sound that is familiarly guitar-heavy and imbued with the Dandys' personality. Happily, there is a greater sense of control than the get-our-mates-onto-the-disc hyper-indulgence of the previous two recordings. The scatty and eccentric track selection persists, however, spoiling what promises to be the best collection the band have produced in some time. It's almost like the Warhols have developed a kind of musical amnesia in recent years and cannot focus on one style or theme for a whole recording.

There are some good highlights among the contrast, though. Sad Vacation is an intense, moody, thumping album-opener, while I Am Free is a sunny romp which works surprisingly well, whilst perhaps being a touch over-long. The pacy Alternative Power to the People is as good as any fuzzy instrumental thrash the Dandy's have ever done, and by the time you get to Don't Shoot She Cried and Slide, you definitely feel the old Dandys are still rocking about in there somewhere, striving with the rich soundscapes they have made their own over nearly two decades.

Disappointingly, it does retain some of the same sloppy raucousness of Odditorium on numbers like Enjoy Yourself and SETI vs the Wow Signal, which are not bad songs in themselves but make an untidy mess of what should be a cohesive whole.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings. 2 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've always loved the Dandy Warhols moody mucic. Sexy, but slightly melancholic. Most of the time with a hint of decadence. The voice, the soundscapes, the lyrics, the overall atmosphere. Yes I'm a fan. And don't get me wrong I'm still a fan. But not in love anymore.
I was excited when the album came out at last. They kept us waiting far too long.
First impression: Wauw, nice songs, hmmm, a little bit short though.
OK, let's play it again and again. And there it is, that's what disappoints me. The album is a just a collection of (nice) songs. It has no alluring atmosphere.
There's no Dandy Warhols world created here. The muse has left the band.I've read that each bandmember has other more inspiring projects running and that's something I think I can hear.
Sure, there are pretty good songs on the album, Slide p.a. is magnificent and my 3star review indicates this album is GOOD, but not GREAT.
I'm afraid they've had their last high a long time ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Layer With Every Listen 26 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
Every listen reveals another layer to every song.
It's sort of a grunge,Gothic sound which perfectly suits Courtney's voice.
This album has fantastic songs, Well They're Gone and Slide are beautiful soft songs, Featuring great vocal performances from both Brent Deboer and Courtney Taylor Taylor.
Then we have the rockers I am Free, Alternative power to the people and Seti vs the Wow signal gets the job done.
The real gems though are Autumn Carnival and Sad Vacation theirs so many layers to these haunting tracks, perfect examples of a gothic styled song, dark and gloomy.
Also Don't shoot she cried is the perfect example of the Dandy's Psychedelic music and it sounds like a mix between Orange and Pete International Airport, druggy and spaced out.

The Dandy's have been a band for 18 years and we've seen some great songs Godless, Green, Just Try, Smoke It, Last High, Love Song but any songs from this machine could be added to this list.

The best part of the Dandies is no two albums sound the same, it's not good if every song sounds the same, we'd get bored of it, The Dandies change genres quicker than we change socks, but however sometimes it doesn't always fit, this time it did. (Sock Metaphors FTW)

Thank You Dandy Warhols and Brian Jonestown Massacre for making good music as the rest of the music industry fell to shit and inspiring awesome bands like the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
I salute you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, A grower. 23 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
I may be a bit biased as I am a long-time Dandy's fan, but the new album 'This Machine' is (in my opinion) quite superb. The first time I listened to the full album I liked it, and each time since it has grown on me more. Whilst the album might not feature the type of obvious thumping guiitar-ripping anthems the band has produced in the past there is plenty of classic Dandy's vibes, with lots of vocal harmonies and skillful musicianship. It's like the Dandy's have matured but have kept the trippy, edgy, rocking guitar-oriented sound thay are loved for. I was lucky enough to be at their gig in London on April 21st where they played tracks from the new album. I liked the tracks then, and like them even more now. I think Dandy's fans or anyone interested in the band will enjoy the new album and welcome the evolution in their music. Like I said, I think it's a grower and having listened to it already once today I want to play it again, but if I do I won't get any work done!
