The Lemonheads’ first record in 10 years! Varshons 2 is a
hokey jukebox filled with unique versions of Yo La Tengo, Nick Cave, The
Bevis Frond, NRBQ, The Eagles, Paul Westerberg, The Jayhawks, Lucinda
Williams and John Prine. Produced by director Matthew Cullen and
mastered by Howie Weinberg (Beastie Boys, Nirvana, The Ramones), their
tenth studio album brims with the slowly-matured vocal of Evan Dando as
he lures a host of personal faves to his melodic lair. He really has
become one of the great expressive singers of our time. Like Hank
Williams slumped in his car between gigs, strumming and hollering,
reasoning and weeping, humming it on over, Evan and his Lemonheads make
every tune their own.
Including some obscure beauties like Florida Georgia Line’s Round Here, Natural Child’s Now And Then, The Eyes’ raucous TAQN and The GiveGoods’ gorgeous Unfamiliar – a tune Dando penned with former Smudge man Tom Morgan.
