Finally accepted The Dandy Warhols
For years, people have been telling me that I'd probably like The Dandy Warhols. And about five years ago I saw the music video for "Scientist" and liked it -- but when I investigated some other DW songs I wasn't really taken.
Maybe my tastes have drifted slightly -- because a week ago I picked up their album Welcome to the Monkey House, and it's been on non-stop rotation at work.
Curiously, the vibe and vocal harmonies of their song "I am Song" reminds me of The Rentals -- except that the arrangement lacks vintage synths. Being reminiscent of The Rentals is a good thing. :)
So, yeah: Dandy Warhols.
