Why You So Crazy
by Amoeba Music

Portland's own Dandy Warhols kick off their twenty fifth year of existence with their tenth full-length release, Why You So Crazy. The title may be a reference to the current state of the world at large, but it could also apply to the band's everything-and-the-kitchen-sink approach to this latest batch of songs. Psych-pop first single? Check. Electro country-tinged Iggy Pop pastiche? Check. Goth piano and spaghetti western guitar dirge? Check. Things may be crazy outside, but inside the Dandy's Odditorium studio things are as satisfyingly eclectic as ever.
