Evan Dando - Baby I'm Bored
Emerging after The Lemonheads disbanded Evan Dando returned to music first with a solo tour and ‰Û÷Live At The Brattle Theatre‰۪ then came his debut solo album ‰Û÷Baby I‰۪m Bored‰۪.åÊåÊ Mature and autobiographical, ‰Û÷Baby I‰۪m Bored‰۪ is a stellar record that stripped Dando of his grunge label. At the time of recording, he was without the band which saw him lean more towards an achingly melodic alt-country rock sound. Self-deprecating, these are songs of decline and coming back from that. The record includes ‰ÛÏHard Drive‰ and ‰ÛÏAll My Life‰ two tracks penned by Ben Lee and features contributions from producer/composer Jon Brion, producer Bryce Goggin, Tom Morgan, Giant Sand‰۪s Howe Gelb, Calexico's John Convertino and Joey Burns, ex-Spacehog frontman Royston Langdon, Come's Chris Brokaw and Arthur Johnson.
‰ÛÏDando has a flair for bruised melancholy that stands comparison with Gram Parsons and Alex Chilton.‰ Q Magazine
‰ÛÏA beautiful album of tender reflections on life, love and drug-induced folly set in soulful, country-tinged guitar pop.‰ The Independent.
