When power-power guru Matthew Sweet teamed up with the Bangles' Susanna Hoffs for a covers record in 2006, the pair tackled songs from the Sixties and Seventies — like the Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning" and Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue." The two returned this summer with a sequel, Under the Covers, Vol. 2, which boasts bright, bouncy takes on the Grateful Dead's "Sugar Magnolia" and Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes."
The pair popped by the RS studios recently to show off some of their work stripped down to just two acoustic guitars and vocals. Check out their rendition of Yes' "I've Seen All Good People: Your Move/All Good People" from their latest album above, and Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl" (from the first covers LP), below.
