Matt Costa (Bonus Tracks)

Matt Costa by Matt Costa
Released: Feb 2013
Matt Costa might release his music on Jack Johnson's Brushfire label, but the singer-songwriter's throwback sound has little to do with surfer folk. Rather, he's a jack-of-all-trades tunesmith weaned on British Invasion nuggets and '70s AM radio. On the punchy "Shotgun," he pulls off a Marc Bolan-like chirp smothered in swirling harmonies, strings and vintage organ (all of which echo the orgiastic pop-nostalgia of the criminally underrated Jellyfish). Costa sounds even more British on "Clipped Wings" and "Laura Lee," both of which wouldn't sound out of place on Donovan's Open Road.
