The alternative rock band Dandy Warhols has announced that they will be releasing a new album, This Machine, on April 24th. The band recorded their eighth album in The Odditorium with producer Jeremy Sherrer. Courtney Taylor-Taylor, the group’s singer-guitarist, describes This Machine as “stripped down, woody and extremely guitar centric.”
Taylor-Taylor also notes that the group was going for a grungy sort of feel with the album despite being told that it’s actually goth. The Oregon-based band called for local talent by using a painting by Oregon native, Hickory Mertsching, for the album cover.
Originating in 1994, The Dandy Warhols currently are made up of Courtney Taylor-Taylor, Peter Holmström, Zia McCabe, and Brent DeBoer. The group’s style has evolved from a more garage-rock, shoegaze feel to a more polished, psychedelic sound and then even to a more pop tone.
