[B]The Dandy Warhols[/B]' music is good enough to override any irritation you might have with their bullshit...
Well, fold your hands, child, you walk like a rock star. For this one at least purports to be about substances over substance. The Dandy Warhols are the sick portrait Belle & Sebastian keep locked in their attic, the absolute triumph of quotes over notes, the least likely band in the world to claim they just make music, and if anyone else likes them it's a bonus. What do you...

The Dandy Warhols - The Dandy Warhols Are Sound: Wikipedia Album Entry
The Dandy Warhols Are Sound is an album by alternative rock band The Dandy Warhols, which is the release of the original Elavado mix of Welcome to the Monkey House. It is set for release on July 14, 2009.
Prior to the release of Welcome to the Monkey House, the band had been pressing for a version mixed by Russell Elavedo, a Grammy-award winning soul mixing engineer whose credits include D'Angelo’s Brown Sugar, The Roots’ The Roots Come Alive, Common’s Like Water For Chocolate, and Alicia Keys’ Songs In A Minor, among others. But contrary to the band’s wishes, the Elavedo mix of Welcome to the Monkey House was shelved by Capitol Records, and an alternate mix the label had arranged was put out instead.
As Taylor-Taylor describes it:
There are two different approaches to mixing. One is very slick and clean, and Welcome To The Monkey House fits more into that category. ARE Sound, however, has a sneakier profile. It seems very lo-fi and earthy, but the fact is, it’s extremely precise.
