Matthew Sweet’s calling card is probably the power-pop force of nature that was his 1992 hit “Girlfriend,” but over the years he’s also distinguished himself by keeping some pretty good company: ace NYC guitarists Robert Quine and Richard Lloyd (the “Girlfriend” years); Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles (the decade-combing Under the Covers series); and even, after a fashion, noted painter Margaret Keane of Big Eyes fame (Sweet is reportedly one of the country’s foremost authorities on her work, and consulted on Tim Burton’s 2014 film). For his latest album, last month’s reliably eclectic Tomorrow Forever (Honeycomb Hideout/RED Distribution), Sweet holed up in his Omaha home studio — he recently relocated back to his native Nebraska — and patched together his bandmates’ parts largely via email, relying on his fans to foot the bill via Kickstarter and rewarding them with an album that’s as sharp and tuneful as anything he’s ever done.
