Gizmodo: “I have funded more Kickstarters than I care to admit. Somewhere in the neighborhood of a dozen. The only ones I have not regretted were … Andy D’s forthcoming album, Warcries. (It is liquid sound insanity.)”
Andrew WK: “Oh I know Andy D – he parties VERY hard“ – via Twitter.
Space City Rock: “Songs In The Key Of Magic is like what Devo might’ve sounded like if they’d met the Beastie Boys back in the early ’80s and started partying and getting stoned together, then crafted a funky, dancey, utterly batshit insane album full of songs about magic, unicorns, wizards, vikings, and rainbows. Oh, and sex. Lots and lots and lots of sex. Squint a little, and Andy almost looks like an ever more sex-obsessed Har Mar Superstar, with the fact that I have no idea if either performer is serious adding to the resemblance. And I have to say, I never, ever thought I’d hear the words “I’m a warlock with your junk!” delivered without a hint of irony.”
Indianapolis Star : “Listeners who appreciate Andrew W.K.’s hedonistic spirit, Lady Gaga’s synth-pop game and Biz Markie’s cartoon approach to hip-hop may find Bloomington-based Andy D to be their next pop-culture obsession.“
Robert Cross, Sirius XMU : “Holy Shit! I don’t know what I was expecting him to look like but he surpassed my wildest expectations. Amazing. Thanks for the entertainment.”
Bloomington Area Music : “Andy D What can be said? His music is explosive, provocative, even teetering on the edge of perversion.”
Rudy Kizer, Hit The Decks Radio : “What the hell can you really say about Andy D that hasn’t been said before. Prince by way of Danny McBride, the electro cool of Fischerspooner mated to the idiot fun of early Beastie Boys, the bastard child of 80s excess and modern hipster cool. Except that doesn’t really capture a live Andy D set – quite possibly, words can’t do it justice. The irony would wear pretty thin if the stage show weren’t so damn entertaining. The lothario swagger and hyperkinetic energy coming from a less-than-svelt Andy is never self-conscious, and the commitment to the performance makes you give less-than-a-shit that he’s no supermodel. Whatever “it” is, Andy D has it by the bucket-full.”
Dick Valentine of Electric Six: “Now THAT’S a business model!“
If vikings time-traveled to the 80s, took semen samples from Grandmaster Flash, Beastie Boys, Michael Jackson, Prince and Poison, came back to the present, inseminated Peaches, and then brought her to the future to have the baby and have it raised by breakdancing robot wolves, you might end up with Andy D. Andy D is a hurricane of sex, sweat, and day-glo. He burst onto the Indianapolis scene a couple years ago, after moving down to Bloomington via Brooklyn. His live shows immediately became the stuff of legend. Combining rap, rock, and humor, Andy D is best experienced in flesh rather than talked about.
Andy D has played with Electric Six, Har Mar Superstar, Matt and Kim, Das Racist, VHS or Beta, 2 Live Crew, Green Jello, and Big Freedia amongst many others.
Andy D released his sophomore album, Songs In The Key Of Magic, in March 2011 on Roaring Colonel Records; he released his third studio album Warcries in January of 2013 on Rad Summer.
