"The Widespread Reign Of The Great Northwest"

For you Dandy Warhols fans out there - particularly those of you who are dedicated to their laid-back, trippy jam sound - check out The Great Northwest's debut album, "The Widespread Reign of The Great Northwest," out tomorrow. Mixed at The Dandy Warhols' Odditorium, this ambient, chill album is the perfect album to sit back and relax to. Like the Dandy Warhols, they utilize a number of various instruments and sounds, which come together to create something very full and rich. Frontman Brian Coates even has a similar relaxed, airy vocal style to Dandy Warhol's frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor. I guess my one request would be to speed up the tempo for a song or two so that you can rock out, like you can with a lot of Dandy Warhols songs.

Check out the lead single from the album: Chief John [mp3]

Purchase the album on iTunes
