Band Pimping: The Lemonheads


For a band that is inextricably linked to the 1990s, The Lemonheads have cemented themselves as one of my Bands of 2010.  I’ve been listening to them a ton all year — thanks, job at a college rock station — and can’t get them out of my head.

The '90s version of The Lemonheads.

Frontman Evan Dando’s drug-addled, country-influenced pop was extremely influential the alt.country genre that blew up in the ’90s, and on modern-day indie rock, as seen by the likes of everyone from Ryan Adams to Band of Horses.

This song, “The Outdoor Type,” is one that could describe me (although, I do go outside relatively often) and is one of the catchiest songs I’ve ever heard.  Have a listen then go check out some of the group’s best albums, like It’s A Shame About Ray and Come On, Feel The Lemonheads.  Dando’s band is still touring, albeit with completely new members from the ones in this video, but they’re worth checking out.

And remember, God bless the Great Indoors.
