Portland Band Dandy Warhols Announce New Album “This Machine” Out April 24th.

February 16, 2012

The Dandy Warhols have been a band for 18 yrs.

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.

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 its our gothiest.   I thought it was our grungiest so I’m really hoping its a hit with
goths who are…um, really outdoorsy?”
