“Dando has a flair for bruised melancholy that stands comparison with Gram Parsons and Alex Chilton.” Baby I’m Bored is a beautiful album of tender reflections on life, love and drug-induced folly set in soulful, country-tinged guitar pop.

Emerging after The Lemonheads disbanded Evan Dando returned to music first with a solo tour and ‘Live At The Brattle Theatre’ then came his debut solo album ‘Baby I’m Bored’.

Mature and autobiographical, ‘Baby I’m Bored’ is a stellar record that stripped Dando of his grunge label. At the time of recording, he was without the band which saw him lean more towards an achingly melodic alt-country rock sound. Self-deprecating, these are songs of decline and coming back from that. Elizabeth Moses, who married Dando in 2000, appears on the album’s cover.
