We've Done Enough Talking

Matthew Sweet - Sunshine Lies e-cardIt's time to listen. There is now officially a flash-enhanced e-card to promote Matthew Sweet's new album Sunshine Lies, which comes out on 8/26. It is complete with previews! Share it, post it, spread the joy everywhere!

Thanks, Dan!

UPDATE: Holy holy hell!!! I've finally had a few minutes to listen to these previews and I AM GEEKED!! This sounds like a pure Matthew Sweet classic. I have chills listening to Time Machine, Feel Fear, Sunshine Lies, Daisychain, almost everything. Goo. This sounds like everything we've been waiting for.

Rumor has it that the full-length has leaked (see comments.) Ok. If you can't wait, I don't blame you. Just be sure you support the artist by buying the album when it's released. Ok? In fact, buy the deluxe version. Then we're cool.

UPDATE 2: Dan tipped us off again to let us know the new official site is live! I have to say I'm a bit underwhelmed by it considering it's been offline for so long. But the MP3 player is a good start and the tour section features the following news:

Matthew will be touring the United States with full band in October/November 2008.
It's all happening!

the whole cd has leaked, have you heard it yet?

Nope. I have to admit that I try to avoid leaks - somewhat of a purist in that way. Although with Matthew Sweet, I'll be buying the deluxe anyway.

I am perhaps TOO excited for this album. I've been telling my brother that this is going to be among Matthew's best. From what I've heard, this album will be WELL worth the wait.

And, I too will be getting the deluxe. How can I NOT?

Hey again all!

Just wanted to let you know that Matthew's new site is FINALLY up!

In one of the pictures of his ceramic cats on his website, there are some Soleri Bells in the upper right corner. Some of them, I'm sure, were purchased the day I met him. Cool!

I wonder if he sells his pottery. I'd live to have one of those cats!

I know his eBay user name if you ever want to track what he's selling. The cats just may pop up one of these days!

I believe there's an email address on his website specifically for contacting him about buying his ceramics.
