Sunshine Lies by Matthew Sweet
Released: Aug 2008
Label: Shout Factory Records
Matthew Sweet keeps the sunny psychedelia, while bringing some ragged guitar punch back to his bittersweet guitar pop -- his sweeping vocal harmonies alone have the ability to sprinkle a few dark clouds into otherwise blue skies. Sweet wisely brings back old friends Richard Lloyd (Television) and Susanna Hoffs (The Bangles), but everything is in service of the songs. He can simultaneously have fun with his power pop fanboy status and carry on the hallowed tradition of his peerless heroes ("Byrdgirl," "Around You Now," "Pleasure Is Mine"). For a good time: Play loud and sing along.
