The Return Of Sid N Susie
Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs' 2006 covers CD, "Under The Covers Volume 1" was inevitable. They have made no secret of their love for 60s pop music; she with The Bangles, and both he and she with their solo work. Under the "Sid n Susie" moniker, although this only appears on the inside of the CD's booklet and on their MySpace page, Sweet and Hoffs dazzle us with faithful and inspired tributes to The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Who, Bob Dylan, The Zombies and The Left Banke, among others.
"Under The Covers Vol. 1," was a success with both critics and fans, with "Volume 2" being promised just days after the release of Volume 1. About 1084 days.
"Under The Covers Volume 2" hits the street on July 21, and boy is it a doozy! Sid n Susie tackle the 70s and artists both expected and unexpected. A full review will appear closer to street date, but for now, here is the tracklist, and some audio one of the unexpected.
