In the ’90s, commonly shirtless rocker Evan Dando set the template for all druggy, actress-courting musicians who followed (yes, he can be blamed for Ryan Adams and John Mayer), but his sweetly solipsistic brand of alt-grunge was always welcome. Having penned the best songs about the girls you do drugs with (“My Drug Buddy”) and the girls you’ll never have (“Allison’s Starting To Happen”), Dando and his Lemonheads might be an exercise in nostalgia today, but damn if they don’t wear it well. With the Canon Logic.
