On today's episode I talk to musician Matt Sweeney. Originally
from northern New Jersey, Matt started playing in bands in high
school with his first group Skunk, who released two albums on
Twin/Tone records. In the early '90s, he formed Chavez, which went
on to release two incredible albums and an EP on Matador. When the
band stopped playing together, Matt became a sideman touring with
GBV and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, until he formed Zwan with Smashing
Pumpkins' Billy Corgan. Although Matt has continued to be a sideman
and session musician, his most extensive musical collaboration in
the 21st century has been with Will Oldham. Their album Superwolf
came out in 2005, and now their latest record Superwolves will be
released on Drag City next week!
