A master of warm and colorful power-pop, Evan Dando recently re-formed his celebrated band The Lemonheads to record a new self-titled album.

The Lemonheads came to prominence in the early '90s with It's a Shame About Ray, which included the hit title track as well as a rousing cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson." After a string of follow-ups that ranged from pop to country to rock, Dando folded the band and took a long hiatus, but he re-emerged in 2003 with a solo album, Baby I'm Bored. His new incarnation of The Lemonheads, which includes the rhythm section from California punk band The Descendents, picks up where he left off, trafficking in the sly, winsome pop that made Dando omnipresent 15 years ago.
