The Dandy Warhols love you, independent record stores, free EPs

The Dandy Warhols are giving away free music starting this Saturday, just because they think you are neat. Really. Oh, and they want to pimp their new album in creative form.

Starting July 19, you can pick up a gratis copy of their Earth To The Remix EP Vol. 1 at your friendly local neighborhood record store, wherein each Dandy takes a turn remixing a track from their August 19th release Earth To The Dandy Warhols (Beat The World Records).

For a complete list of participating stores, visit the Record Store Day site. Also, there is an interesting new interview with leadman Courtney Taylor-Taylor in The Sentimentalist.

1. Come the Fuck On
(A Peter Holmstrom/ Jeremy Sherrer remix)
2. THE MONSTER MISH
(A Taylor-Taylor / Jacob Portrait remix)
3. Welcome to the Skin-up Remix

  • o, yay. i do so heart the dandies.
    we’ll see what the ratio of wicked psych-rock jams to lame jamtastic dirges is this time around!

  • still one of my favorite bands of all time… naturally they start the tour bus up when i’m on my way to live in england for a year. i have to say after first listen i was a bit disappointed by the new album… perhaps a free remix ep will be the nudging required to get me back into it (i’m scared to listen again and still not like it…)

  • they’re absolutely one of my all-time favorites, too. hmm. now you have me curious.
    steve, if you dig dandies, there’s a brand-new denver band worth checking out: hawks of paradise. they’ll have an ep out soon, but until then, listen here: http://www.myspace.com/hawksofparadise

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
