The Lemonheads The Lemonheads Wow, Evan Dando has had more than a few line up changes in his Lemonheads career but I don't think many people expected the new album to feature the backbone of punk rock past and present to be not only his backing band but joint songwriters. Bill Stevenson (of Descendents/Black Flag and producer to countless numbers of punk bands) teams up with Karl Alvarez (also from Descendents) and a guest spot from J.Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.)! Three of the best songwriters in modern alternative music, it's got to be good! 1. Black Gown 2. Become The Enemy 3. Pittsburgh 4. Let's Just Laugh 5. Poughkeepsie 6. Rule Of Three 7. No Backbone 8. Baby's Home 9. In Passing 10. Steve's Boy 11. December My Space Vagrant CD

The Lemonheads Hotel Sessions Expected January The Lemonheads will release Hotel Sessions, an intimate recording documenting a Sunday night that Evan Dando spent recording new songs with just an acoustic guitar (and some revealing commentary) in a hotel room in Bondi Beach, Australia. The 14 songs include some that never made it to an official Lemonheads album, but Dando says, "the "Into Your Arms" I did here is better than the one on the album (I like it anyway). http://www.facebook.com/TheLemonheads Hall Of Records LP Pre-Order
The Lemonheads Can't Forget / Wild Child [RSD19] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2019. Any remaining stock will be available online from Saturday 20th April, strictly one per customer. LTD pressing of AA 7" single. 1000 pressed. “No strangers to a cover, The Lemonheads perfect the art” NME // Limited edition pressing of AA 7” single, ‘Can’t Forget’ is the lead single, and Yo La Tengo cover, from the new Lemonheads album. AA-side is unreleased cover of Lou Reed’s ‘Wild Child’ this is an exclusive and not on the album. Produced by Matthew Cullen and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Beastie Boys, Nirvana, The Ramones). It’s nearly ten years since The Lemonheads strummed to a halt on their ninth studio album, a perky well received set of covers that brought together many unlikely bedfellows (Gibby Haynes produced, Kate Moss did a cameo vocal). The band’s follow up repeats the formula with Evan way out upfront, his emotive slow maturing vocal making sense of another wide-beam playlist. He really has become one of the great expressive singers. “Heartfelt songs and a honey voice with which to sing them” GQ // “Boppy, overcast alt-rock delivered at a fast clip and sung in a whiskey tenor” Pitchfork // Track List A – Can’t Forget AA – Wild Child Fire Records 7" RSD 2019
The Lemonheads Take It Easy The Lemonheads bring together two unique takes on The Eagles’ ode to romance and the road, Take It Easy. From their Varshons II album that brought together intriguing takes on everyone from Nick Cave and The Bevis Frond through to John Prine, Yo La Tengo, Lucinda Williams and Paul Westerberg. Version One is a piece of itchy white line fever, switching gears as the eight-track spirals on, a singalong variation with a right arm tan – all alt-country and joyous, with an undertone of pain and remorse. Evan: “Take It Easy is kinda rough. It was my girlfriend's idea, but it was my idea to make it sound anaemic and bloodless... enjoy!” Version two is a Matthew Cullen production – a suicide mix, with Schneider and Hutter sharing the wheel, as the road map heads right into the soundtrack of Tron – that’s Satnavs for you...
