The Dandy Warhols are one of those staple 1990s-era post-grunge alt rock bands that are so consistently fun and out-there that I almost take their existence for granted. Until, of course, they release an album like this year’s Why You So Crazy, their 10th overall. The Portland group has always leaned heady and cheeky, tossing elements of garage, power pop, synth rock, shoegaze, roots rock, and a bit of Brit invasion pop into their mix. Why You So Crazy is particularly genre-jumping fabulous, touching on gothic twang in “Highlife,” which finds Zia McCabe on snotty lead vocals, the strum-and-stomp of “Sins Are Forgiven,” and the spacey cosmic Americana of “Motor City Steel,” to the expected fuzz, drive, and heady rolling vibe of “Be Alright,” the swaggering little groove and high-reaching vocal weirdness of “Thee Elegant Bum,” the cheeky, slinky psychedelia of “Next Things I Know,” and the warped melting-on-itself farting-and-zipping synth bizarrity of “To the Church, all driven by frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor’s mix of low and breathy vocalizing, odd falsettos, and crusty, over-pronounced Southern drawls. by Leilani Polk
