Secret Colours - Dream Dream (Self Released) 2017 $13
Secret Colours - EP3 (Self Released) 2013 $7
Matthew Sweet - Catspaw (Omnivore Records) 2021 $15
“Catspaw” represents a marked contrast with Matthew’s previous two albums, “Tomorrow Forever” and “Tomorrow’s Daughter”, sounding a little less zesty than either of its predecessors. As with so many prior albums, its foundation lies in tracks Matthew recorded by himself in collaboration with long-time percussionist Ric Menck, but this time, rather than overdub other musicians’ and singers’ contributions (as well as layer upon layer of himself singing), here he plays everything except the drums and does all the vocals. Here, he cranks his vintage amplifiers and steps into a role previously played by some of his generation’s most unique and incendiary lead guitarists from Richard Lloyd (Television) to Robert Quine (Lou Reed) and Ivan Julian (Richard Hell & the Voidoids).
