The Dandy Warhols are putting out their eighth record in eighteen years; it doesn't seem possible they've been around that long, does it? But then again it kind of feels like they've always been around. And, aside from what in our opinion was one minor misstep, the band's created a solid and dependable body of work. Their new record, This Machine, finds the band back in a hard driving rocker mode. It's all built on a groove but there's a laid-back aggression that runs throughout the album's eleven songs. We've been addicted to this disc for weeks now and can't wait until everyone else gets a chance to hear it (full review forthcoming) but until then we'll have to be satisfied sharing the disc's lead off track the band's released.
