In this edition of Audiography, we begin on a somber note; Len Comaratta offers his own tribute to Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch by sharing a personal story. Shortly after, the podcast’s regular programming continues with audio reviews of the latest releases from Ty Segall and White Fence, Fixers, as well as former Fleet Foxes drummer J Tillman’s Father John Misty.
We also speak with Courtney Taylor-Taylor, leader of Portland’s own The Dandy Warhols. After working in the business for over 20 years, Taylor and the band returned last month with their eighth studio effort, This Machine. Both Comaratta and Taylor-Taylor discussed the new album, writing songs amongst the band, meeting Andrew Eldridge, and singing onstage with Love and Rockets and the thin white duke himself, David Bowie, a performance thought never captured. Well, we have it.
