Can The Dandy Warhols stay relevant and weird in the Portland music scene when the city has gentrified and gotten significantly cleaner and more square? Distortland might find them at their poppiest and breeziest, but the out-there arrangements and love lyrics that a pop star wouldn't touch with a pole still make them the senior wackos of Portland. "Search Party" leans close to electronic '90s Britpop with its hypnotic fuzz and spaced-out guitars that feel like the perfect cosmic backdrop to an addictive pop song. "STYGGO" feels like a Talking Heads outtake from the Stop Making Sense era, with a funky bass line, bongos, and an acoustic guitar hook that balance against psychedelic lyrics that taste like candy-covered painkillers. Adding a new, professional sheen to Distortland is producer Jim Lowe, who previously has worked with the Stereophonics and mixed hits by Taylor Swift. He takes the album in directions the Warhols themselves wouldn't have gone. Done via e-mail, frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor would send him the raw tracks and wait a day before getting them back, and would be blown away by the results. The Dandy Warhols have always been one of the most interesting and best indie rock bands, and Distortland 's catchy tracks that are simultaneously poppy and gonzo balance so perfectly that you'll keep wanting to listen to this album until the needle breaks.
