Evan Dando – Live at the Brattle Theatre/Griffith Sunset EP
Disc 1 is a solo acoustic gig, great stuff, a great cover of Big Star’s ‘Thirteen’, it’s a shame he didn’t play ‘Rudderless’ that night (he did that at the Paradiso last year, and it was amazing…)
On disc 2 Evan plays 7 covers, from Fred Neil’s ‘Ba-de-da’ via Townes van Zandt’s ‘Nothin’ to Tim Hardin’s ‘Tribute to Hank Williams’, very fine covers indeed……
Snowpony – Sea shanties for spaceships
Members include Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine), Debbie Smith (Echobelly) and K.L. Gifford (Stereolab). Sounds somewhere between MBV, the Slits (remember them?) and Belly, nice stuff!
