Matt Costa ( Uni­ver­sal)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MUSIC - Cameron Adams

CAL­I­FOR­NIAN Matt Costa is signed to Jack John­son’s la­bel Brush­fire Records, but his vi­sions stretch way be­yond busker folk – although he’s a dab hand with an acous­tic gui­tar when needed. His self- ti­tled fourth al­bum con­tin­ues his love af­fair with ’ 60s and ’ 70s AM ra­dio pop. He’s all Bacharacy on Early Novem­ber, the bouncy Lov­ing You is coun­try har­monies over bar- room pi­ano, Good Times is John Len­non with a horn sec­tion and Shot­gun shows Costa’s been lis­ten­ing to ELO, which is never a bad thing. He gets a bit folky and mo­rose on the Nick Drake- y Laura Lee but closes with the gor­geous, epic- sound­ing Golden Cathe­drals.
