Perhaps best known for their 2000 release, “Bohemian Like You,” The Dandy Warhols have become a familiar name in the world of rock. Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1993, The Dandy Warhols have gone on to release seven albums, contribute music to television shows like Undeclared and Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and were the subject of Dig!, a rock biopic. Their sound combines a hazy irreverence with youthful camp, resulting in some pretty memorable tunes that draw comparisons to The Velvet Underground and Love and Rockets.
During their session at The Pop Machine, Courtney Taylor-Taylor and Brent DeBoer played songs from the Dandy’s newest album, a retrospective entitled, “The Capitol Years: 1995 – 2007.”
On “Get Off,” the two create a driving, catchy rhythm, while “We Used To Be Friends” and “Stars” (a b-side from 2004) illustrate their ear for harmonies. The band is currently on tour throughout the U.S. and Europe in support of the release of their newest album.
