Dom – “My Drug Buddy” (Lemonheads Cover)
We haven’t heard much from Dom since he changed his project’s name to Kiss 1O8 and released a set of spazzed-out electronic instrumentals last fall, but the Worcester native seems to be getting back in touch with his alt-rock side. Specifically, he just released a cover of the Lemonheads classic “Drug Buddy,” a song from 1992’s near-perfect It’s A Shame About Ray on which Evan Dando sang about his love for a girl with whom he gets high and ambles around. Dom’s version is faithful, albeit with a slightly spacier tone. Download it below.
In related news, if I had been working at Stereogum on 6/2/12, you better believe I would have written a glowing It’s A Shame About Ray 20th anniversary retrospective because that album is so good.
