Longstanding Portland quartet the Dandy Warhols last stopped through to bring us “The World The People Together (Come On)” from their elliptical self-released sixth album …Earth To The Dandy Warhols…. Building upon that title (and the fact that they had sci-fi writer Richard K. Morgan do their bio for the record), the Mike Bruce-directed video for “Mission Control” is broadcast via a television circa 1969 and finds the band decked in spacesuits and rocking out in zero gravity.

…Earth To The Dandy Warhols… is out via Beat The World. The Warhols are playing some shows this fall on planet earth:

  1. I think the Dandy’s get a bad wrap for being phony. They’ve written some really incredible songs, and its a testament to their commitment and vision that they stayed together after Capitol dropped them.

    The Dandy Warhols have made some damn fine albums in the past, let’s just hope this new one is better than their last two.

    This album is so good.

  6. One of my friends who’s a big Dandy’s fan had this to say about the new album:

    “new dandy’s rocks save for the last track (possibly the worst song ever)”
