Music: Unfamiliar Faces by Matt Costa

We recently acquired the new Matt Costa album, Unfamiliar Faces. We've long been fans of Matt's lyrical genius and his simple guitar accompaniment. This album is more of the same, and brings us much happiness through the cold and lonely days.

"Behind the mountains where the Cuckoo sings,
They tried to mine a miner for his golden veins.
But a guy gets lonely and a guy gets sick.
Evil woman you're bound to make a mess of it. "
-- Bound

"You were right. I was up all night
Thinking about you.
Dreamed I choked on your kaleidoscope
Now you still look deadly."
-- Lilacs

Quick vote: This fun, upbeat album by Matt Costa is a treasure.
