Dandys and friends band
together to fight Portland,
By Blurt Staff
The Dandy Warhols sure do have a lot of friends in bands. Good things these friends all decided to get
together and do some good. They got
their friends to gether to help record an album over time in the band’s studio,
“The Odditorium,” which is described thusly:
“The Odditorium…is more than simply one band’s space. It’s also
home to their friends, the touring and local bands looking for a place to play,
to record. The Dandys began inviting other bands to participate in a collective
project, the artists coming in on their own time to record new ideas over
tracks others had already laid down, together creating what becomes a nearly
living musical entity.”
And that “nearly living musical entity is “Breath Easy.” Finally, fans who have wondered what J.
Mascis guitar drenched squall would sound like next to Saul WIlliams industrial
tinged political rap have to wait no longer.
“Breathe Easy” also features Britt Daniel from Spoon, the Black Angels,
Midnight Angels, and the Raveonettes.
100 % of the album profits will go to support the Three Rivers Land
The Three Rivers Land Conservancy is a non-profit organization
that works to conserve and preserve land by the Clackamas, Tualatin, and lower Willamette Rivers against urbanization. Through consumer purchases, and corporate
contributions, their initial goal is to save 10,000 acres of Oregon’s natural habitat.
