The Lemonheads (Cooking Vinyl)

Never the most motivated of singers, Evan Dando has lapsed into near-invisibility in recent years, and the arrival of his third album in 13 years won’t help.

Varshons is a covers album, and comes with all the perils that usually accompany this most dreary of genres: a look-at-me hodge-podge of material (from Leonard Cohen to Christina Aguilera), a similarly maddening and needless jumble of styles and a total lack of cohesion.

For diehards only.
