Matt Costa – Unfamiliar Faces

January 24, 2008

Indie-style acoustic guitar heavy pop with a 60’s and early 70’s feel, Matt Costa’s music on his second album, Unfamiliar Faces, is easygoing and likeable. While there are a couple duds, such as “Emergency Call,” which seems ready made for the soundtrack of a Hollywood romantic comedy, most of Unfamiliar Faces has an easygoing, affable charm that goes a long way in selling the songs to listeners. Other songs such as “Bound” and “Heart Of Stone” have an edge to them that bodes well for future releases. Standout cuts: “Mr. Pitiful,” “Vienna,” “Cigarette Eyes” and “Bound.”
