Sound it Out # 26: The Dandy Warhols - "The Autumn Carnival"
The Dandy Warhols have been a band since 1994. They’ve released 8 widely-different studio albums in these 18 years - their sound has fluctuated between garage rock, electronic and psychedelic. Their new record is called This Machine and came out this week. It’s a guitar record in that many of the songs have really interesting signature riffs and rhythms that are guitar-driven. It rocks in a restrained manner.
“The Autumn Carnival” is one of the mellower new Dandys tracks but it’s the one I find most addictive. The song has a weighty quality that merges Courtney Taylor-Taylor’s sensuous whisper perfectly with swirling guitar and calliope-esque keyboards. I can’t recommend it enough.

Thinking of a business idea is the easy part. Doesn’t even have to be a “good” idea, you can still get people to throw money at a non-existent venture, but to do that you need to at least have something even resembling a viable business plan. Why doesn’t anyone do it then? Because building that semi-viable […]
