THE LEMONHEADS NORTH AMERICAN TOUR CONTINUES WITH SPECIAL GUEST TOMMY STINSON
NEW 7″ SINGLE ‘TAKE IT EASY’ OUT JUNE 14TH
TAKEN FROM ‘VARSHONS 2’ ALBUM AVAILABLE ON FIRE RECORDS
The Lemonheads bring together two unique takes on The Eagles’ ode to romance and the road, ‘Take It Easy’. Taken from their ‘Varshons 2’ album that brought together intriguing takes on everyone from Nick Cave and The Bevis Frond through to John Prine, Yo La Tengo, Lucinda Williams and Paul Westerberg.
Version One is a piece of itchy white line fever, switching gears as the eight-track spirals on, a singalong variation with a right arm tan – all alt-country and joyous, with an undertone of pain and remorse. Evan says: “‘Take It Easy’ is kinda rough. It was my girlfriend’s idea, but it was my idea to make it sound anaemic and bloodless… enjoy!”
Version Two is a Matthew Cullen production – a suicide mix, with Schneider and Hutter sharing the wheel, as the road map heads right into the soundtrack of Tron – that’s GPS for you…
The Lemonheads are currently on a North American tour with special guest support from Tommy Stinson (on all dates).
