Released:
Label: Brushfire Records/Universal
Since Unfamiliar Faces has its sights set on introducing songwriter Matt Costa to just left-of-center pop audiences, things start out on the right foot with the convivial "Mr. Pitiful" -- even against sunny jams like "Emergency Call," the bouncing piano opener is a cinch for the record's chirpiest three minutes. Elsewhere, Costa's solid writing shines on the slightly sappy stuff, like "Never Looking Back" (nicked from the Shins' faux country playbook), or the bossa lilt of "Vienna."
