iTunes Review

The Dandy Warhols' hipster vibe has always enchanted and alienated in equal measure. Living in an alt-rock scene that's suspicious of rock-star poses, the Dandys embrace a druggy glamour that pays homage to The Velvet Underground and countless shoegazers. Their style has shifted over the years, and This Machine dips into the mystic with a number of variations that make them harder to pigeonhole than ever. "Well They're Gone" stars an enticing and restrained vocal from Courtney Taylor-Taylor, serving as a relief point from the band's dark and involved wall of sound. "Rest of Head" adds the glorious shimmer that comes about when you add enough reverb to blur the results. "Sad Vacation" rumbles on a thick bass line that sparks up a glorious feedback-laced (but muted) explosion of color and sound. The cover of Tennessee Ernie Ford's "16 Tons" is great shronk-inspired deconstructive rock. The bonus cover of The Violent Femmes' "Kiss Off" is loud and uncompromising, a further message that the Dandys haven't mellowed after all these years. 

Customer Reviews

A diverse album, the Dandy's back on top form

I am really enjoying This Machine. It has a great collection of diverse tracks with a few really stand-out tunes. The Dandy's music has taken a few directions over the years and all those "sounds" make an appearance on the album. In addition, though, there is a slightly darker edge to some of the lyrics and the album does have a very atmospheric feel. The band have always been able to take fans on a musical journey and this album is no different.

For me, The Autumn Carnival, Rest Your Head and I am Free immediately jump out at you the first time you hear them. Overall, very happy with my purchase. It feels like a step up from the previous album and the Dandy Warhols have laid down a marker suggesting they will be around for some time to come.

It Doesn't Disappoint

Another great album!
Listened to this album several times now and can honestly say, there's not a song here that I don't like.

Heaven - the Dandy's cover Violent Femmes

Fantastic album. You get the usual cornucopia of styles - Well they're gone - could be Grandaddy while - Sad vacation - is classic Dandy. For me the stand out track has to be Zia's stunning cover of Kiss Off.

Biography

Formed: 1992 in Portland, OR

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The psychedelic alternative quartet the Dandy Warhols formed in Portland, Oregon in 1994. Initially, the band invited comparisons to influences the Velvet Underground and Ride, but their cool, detached demeanors and knack for melody also provided America with an answer to Brit-pop. The Dandy Warhols were founded by Courtney Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmstrom (guitar), and Eric Hedford (drums), who signed on with the independent label Tim/Kerr shortly after their formation....
