Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs - The Pillowcase EP
The Pillowcase EP is a double 7" vinyl collection of a-sides and b-sides from the Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs collaboration Under the Covers. Each of the songs is covered ably by Sweet and Hoffs, but I can't say that I prefer them to the originals. More than anything this EP introduced me to The Left Banke, which is a big deal. As vanity projects go, this is a good one and thoroughly enjoyable. Just don't be surprised if this EP or the album from which it is derived inspire you to go listen to the original versions.
