I Digg It! BJM!

 
I REALLY don't understand why there is no BJM on RP? (Brian Jonestown...). Can you clarify that Bill?
Such a happy little song {#Bananajam}
I see they put a lot of effort into those lyrics.

It's sarcasm folks.  Don't downvote this comment!

Yes I love the Dandy Warhols. More please!

This is the first song that made me a diehard Dandy Warhol fan. I want to learn the banjo when I retire.

Yep, that caught my ear as well (and the Blister in the Sun reference).  I'll admit, I really like that song Lady.

 
I'm hearing Perfect Skin by Lloyd Cole and the Commotions

Love these guys!  What fun, joyful spirit!

Hmmm. I went to see them in Vancouver a couple of years back. They were so astonishing awful that most of the audience had left well ahead of the finish.

 
That's hard to believe. I've seen them several times, and they have never been even remotely awful.

We all have songs that make us dance around the house (or want to, at any rate) and this is one of mine..

Yeah, sounds exactly like it... D-C-G: that chord progression (not a "riff", by the way) is probably only in about 10,000 other songs - most of which preceded Boston.

The Dandies are a great band, and fabulous in concert. They just returned from a European tour and will be hitting the road to a stage near you soon. Don't miss them if you have an opportunity to go!

Amen to that. I'd suggest also slacker 'tude, "Y'busy? Thought we'd have a party..."

I always think of this post whenever I hear this song. It's happy and sad at the same time.......
Ha ha! I applaud one of the best segways in the history of radio. 
The waiting is the hardest part..
Lovin/ some Dandies! Saw their 20th anniversary party in Portland in December. So many infectious grooves. Even the old guys were dancing.

love that description - the 'joyous twangly guitars' is exactly what got me about this song as well :-)

I'd say it depends on the relative strength of your coffee. I make some serious coffee, but we have an understanding. 
(Sorry, I just now saw this,)
There's that banjo again!
 Visited the island in June- life is definitely very good there.  Helluva downshift in temperature from Texas in June, I assure you. But frickin beautiful. Enjoy!

Cool song. Wondering .. why the brief ATC snippet at the end? Doesn't seem connected to the song.

"... climb and maintain flight level 330 ... "
 
Guesses:
 
1. Song written while on tour.  ATC snippet = flying home to the object of "Love Song."
 
2. Song is so elevating, somebody needs to be in charge of all of us floating upward.
 
3. These guys are weird, and they had to put in something to remind us.

Others?
This is the happiest song! I've got to give it a 10 just for the smile it puts on my face {#Jump}

Another one that has been growing on me lately.  I at first thought the instrumentals to be too repetitious and made it seem boring.  Now I'm hearing it from a somehow different perspective—think Glass in "Drumming"—and it is far more interesting.

Little shift to cooler weather, rug mowing done, (the cute little norwich terrier gives off a LOT of hair), looking forward to lunch, snacking on chips & soda, feeding chips to the dog, rocking to the Dandy Warhols.  Life in America is good.

Nice little melodic riff repeated 8 million times ... but just short of "repeated once too often."

Yes, there does seem to be an undercurrent of humor or occasional parody to their work.  Well, just look at their band name.  Good tune.

Love the banjo!

Everybody in my hotel room loves this song...

Exactly! Not that I don't like this song but can you play Lloyd Cole as well? Love Lloyd!

"Les Dandy Warhols font un retour fracassant avec ce 6ème LP, Earth To The Dandy Warhols qui regroupe les divers sons et influences qui caractérisent depuis toujours leur musique. Pied de nez à l industrie du disque le groupe a décidé de s'affranchir des majors et de sortir cet album sur son propre label, self-founded Beat the World Records label.

Avec les participations de Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) et Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)."

Love the tune for Love Song. Very trippy. Gets me moving toward high, ya know? But I forgot my universal translator. Sounds like someone recorded this through a sheet of plastic.

Yup, I agree... And I believe the Dandies, Courtney Taylor in particular, are responsible for the production. They need to hand over future production duties to someone else.
The band sure did seem to have a good time recording this album, though. Lots of trippy, psychedelic songs on this one. BTW, I would call the production muddy and muffled sounding rather than tinny (the word an earlier poster used to describe the sound).
 
Well, the master tapes are sitting somewhere. Maybe one day someone could give them a clean and polish and we can listen to the the music as it was intended.  
 Poacher wrote:

I second that. Its a great album but almost unlistenable. Whoever did the production/engineering should be banned from the industry.

The entire album is very bad sounding - tinny, undynamic. A real shame since it contains quite a few good tracks. I've only listened to the cd once due the bad audio quality.

Just Dandy! {#Bananasplit}
Is it me, or is it that there is some Collinish (Phil) tone there?

Really nice tune! However, it sounds kinda tinny to me - wonder if that's due to low mp3 quality or poor production values? Maybe CD owners can shed light on this?

so extremely silly  - and so extremely good at the same time. a gem!
Love the LRB allusion!
Very good, come on and dance {#Dancingbanana}

Perfect set for me! Keep the magic happening! {#Dancingbanana}

One of my favorites since signing on RP.   


Love the earlier reference to the Feelies, a far better band than any fame they ever received.  More Feelies I guess!

{#Dance} very happy music



I love this song...

I love pretty much anything the Dandys do, except the last song on this CD,
which was a whole lot of nothing.
