On Tuesday I went to the private show Matt was having at a record store called Fingerprints in long beach, Ca.
It was really spectacular. If you haven't heard the new album, definitely pick it up!

Anybody still out there? Sorry it's been so quiet, but it looks like news is picking up in the Matt world. First, if you're like me, you somehow missed the fact that Matt now has an official Twitter:


Also, the single for "Witchcraft" has been released on iTunes. You guys may remember Matt performing that song way back in 2008. The single is $0.99 and has really neat artwork.


Lastly, here's a new video from Matt's official Youtube. Check out this clip of Matt and his band running through some songs at East/West Studios in Los Angeles. Look for full clips to be posted soon. Video filmed by Robert Carranza.

It's been quiet in the Matt world recently, so here's some exciting news:

Hello Folks,

I have been recording in Pheasant Studios extensively over the last few months. A new record is on the way. With the help of Mothers Sons and a slew of other tinkering madmen there is a lot to show for it. I am posting the song ‘Permanent Vacation’ which was written the other evening. In the meantime I am in Southern California and will
be journeying down to Australia at the end of March. I look forward to seeing everyone out there. I will be posting new live dates and new songs periodically on the site. So, keep your eyes blinking and your ears open.

Go to www.mattcosta.com for the download.


To access the download, you can either post to Facebook or Twitter, or sign up for the mailing list.

from the oc weekly music blog:

Costa also seems to be starting fresh with a whole new band
(as announced on the official Brushfire Records Twitter account) and, as we discussed previously, will be embarking on a mini-hometown small venue tour around Southern California in November.
(read the rest of the blog post here)

not really sure how i feel about this, his band seems pretty integral... was anybody at the show last night? how did it go? who's the new band?
