You Tell Me That You've Heard Every Sound There Is

Matthew Sweet & Susanna HoffsFinally there is some firm news about the new Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs CD of covers. Under the Covers Vol. 1 will be released April 18. Not surprisingly, you'll hear tunes by the Beatles, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan among others. Evidently, Sweet and Hoffs are old friends and were even members of that smashing, lovely, brilliant band Ming Tea.

And, sigh, their first foray online is on MySpace. You can preview a couple tunes there. Sounds good, as you'd expect, if not a bit uninspired. Voices work well together though and I'm always thrilled to hear anything new from Sweet.
