Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs

As an avowed fan of Matthew Sweet I may be in danger of breaking my musical/fan vows since I don’t own the album he made a few years back with Susanna Hoffs, Under The Covers, Vol. 1

Via Paste I learned that I’m so (fashionably?) late to the party that they’ve gone and released a follow-up disc, Under The Covers, Vol. 2.

Whereas the first CD focused on 60’s covers, the new CD is all 70’s covers highlighted by a personal favorite, Mott The Hoople’s “All The Young Dudes.” I also like The Raspberries’ “Go All The Way” but was initially repulsed by the inclusion of Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May” until I gave it a listen on their MySpace.

As with all things musical, you’re mileage may vary, but I’ve got some iTunes gift cards burning a hole in my wallet that I now know how to spend.
