The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #18 - The Dandy Warhols

When it comes to year-end lists, y'all know I don't mess around. I don't post my picks from the previous year for weeks after the next year has started. In 2012, there was a bounty of music that entered the world that made me deliriously happy to be blessed with the sense of sound. So I pondered, marinated, and contemplated for weeks. Music from 2012 has been digested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now, friends, it's time. Time to share with you what I consider the cream of quite a crop indeed. You might see things omitted here that you think should be on a Best Of list. This list isn't what I think you want to read. This list is what I feel about last year. If it's not here, I either didn't spend enough time with it or just didn't love it enough. A big thank you to all of the artists who created the music that I fell in love with last year.

WHO: The Dandy Warhols

WHAT: This Machine

WHEN: April 2012

WHERE: The End

WHY: Once a rabid fan of the Dandy Warhols, my affection had waned somewhat over the past few years. This Machine brought me back to the fold. It's a record of nearly vintage Dandy sounds, throbbing psych rock and that breathy, can't be bothered sass of Courtney Taylor-Taylor's vocals. It's not a coincidence they've been around as long as they have, and if you've not yet tasted what these Portlanders can do, friends, I'd advise you do so now.   

MY JAMS: "Sad Vacation" "The Autumn Carnival" "Rest Your Head" "I Am Free" "Seti Vs The Wow! Signal"
