Another trip down memory lane this week as The Lemonheads and Dinosaur Jr. return with Varshons and Farm, respectively.
Historically, The Lemonheads have favored cover songs (one of their biggest hits paid homage to Simon and Garfunkel) and their latest effort continues the trend with a collection of incredibly diverse material by artists ranging from Gram Parsons to Leonard Cohen and G.G. Allin. The album's guest artists include Evan Dando's beautiful friends Liv Tyler and Kate Moss, the latter sounding a bit like Metric's Emily Haines on "Dirty Robot."
Dinosaur Jr.'s new LP features original material written and performed by original members including Lou Barlow who rejoined the band in 2005. You can catch J. Mascis, Barlow and Murph on Oct. 31 at The Urban Lounge for one hell of a Halloween hoedown. Ted Dancin' will follow the 9 p.m. performance. Yee-haw!
Also out today, new works by Regina Spektor, a collection of Shawn Colvin's live material and more potentially bombastic prog-rock courtesy of Mars Volta.
