Portland, OR is such a cool city. The city is more compact than other large cities, which makes it all the mroe fun to explore ... you don't have to drive everywhere like you do in LA or something.
So I cannot help but like the Dandy Warhols, okay? I don't care what you all think. I actually enjoyed Welcome to the Monkey House, even though it got pretty horrible reviews. They do the whole druggy psychedelic pop sound well ... Courtney Taylor's voice blends into their incredibly chill style very well, and they have only gotten better with time. (It took me so long to figure out that Courtney was not the girl in the band ... ).
Anyway, the Dandys have a new album out on the 13th called Odditorium or Warlords of Mars. You can hear the whole thing here (just click on the "click to hear sampler" or the cover art). I like the accompanying movies.
But one question ... how the hell is this thing a sampler? It's like ... all the songs and they're all full length ...

Speaking of full length ... don't these songs look terribly long? What's up with that?
