Acoustic Covers Week: Evan Dando- Beautiful and Glen Phillips- I Want a New Drug

2 of my favorite bands of the nineties were the Lemonheads and Toad the Wet Sprocket.  The decade was known for grunge, but there was a lot of great jangly alternative groups for which these were 2 of the best.  Evan Dando demonstrates how Christina Aguilera’s Beautiful can have a whole different tone to it, when sung at a low register.  Glen Phillips (of Toad) makes me love again a Huey Lewis song that I thought was dead to me from overplay during the 80’s. (Bonus you get some tasty Nickel Creek licks done live.)
