The Dandy Warhols’ FM friendliness always felt slightly wrong, perverse, almost mocking. In that sense they share a heritage with Weezer, but unlike the latter, who became consumed by the pursuit of stardom, The Dandy Warhols have remained singular.
Why You So Crazy – a question they might ask themselves – is littered with psychedelic rockabilly, hoedown revenge chants, slinky blues rock, mind-bending ambient soundscapes, and a striking instrumental piano piece named after a water spirit.
Why You So Crazy is relentlessly them, which is to say, like nothing else.
Why You So Crazy is out Jan 25 via Sony.
