The Upsidedown: Human Destination Tour With Dandy Warhols

The Upsidedown have already managed to amass quite a reputation in
their native Portland, thanks much in part to their dynamic live show,
which takes full advantage of their six-person strong line-up. It’s
engaging and thick with layers of instrumentation, and now, with
the help of The Dandy Warhols and their newly-minted Beat The World
Records, the band is taking its appeal to the rest of the country.

Acting as support for The Dandys throughout their entire upcoming
fall North American tour, The Upsidedown have found the perfect
platform on which to display their new record, Human Destination,
out digitally-only on August 12 (eMusic subscribers will be able to
download it August 5). The album captures the group’s live energy
without sacrificing any of the subtleties developed in the studio,
and songs like the West Coast-country tinged “Umbrella,” which
contrasts bassist Tristan T-bird Evans’s breathy harmonies with
frontman (and former member of The Bella Low) Jsun Atoms’s deep,
near-growling vocals. “Ernestine” finds guitarist/accordionist Matt
Moore singing in his higher range over minor picked guitar chords,
but both the title track and “Silver Wind” are catchy and upbeat,
driven by hooks and handclaps and alternating vocals.

Beginning in Minneapolis on September 9 and ending October 5 in
Portland, both bands (with added help from Darker My Love, and
one-off appearances from A Place To Bury Strangers, The Charlatans,
and fellow Beat-The-Worlders Monstrous) will bring their shows to
their American and Canadian audiences, supporting their new albums.
Now fully independent, The Dandy Warhols’ release their sixth
full-length, …Earth To The Dandy Warhols…, on August 19.
