Matt Costa - Witchcraft

Biography

When Matt Costa sat down to write what would become Unfamiliar Faces, the follow-up to his 2005 debut full-length Songs We Sing, the singer/songwriter took his most treasured belongings and put them on a shelf — then stared at them and just let the memories flow. “That way I could see everything that I loved,” he explains (the collection included his favorite books, a giant ...

Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the singer/songwriter. Mining his long time love for '60's Psychedelic superheroes like Donovan, 13th Floor Elevators, the Zombies, the Electric Prunes, and the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Mobile Chateau is a bold step forward into the kaleidoscope beyond, and a fitting follow up to the sublime Songs We Sing and Unfamiliar Faces LPs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shocking September 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I got into Matt Costa through Jack Johnson's record label, and I have enjoyed him immensely. I especially liked Unfamiliar Faces, with it's acoustic feel and increased instrumentation. I looked forward to the release date of Mobile Chateau and bought it the day it came out.

On first listen, I didn't know what to think. Actually, my first thought was that I had downloaded some MP3s of lost Beatles music. This is not any Matt Costa you have heard before. You have to listen to him as an entirely new artist. I was shocked that this was the same guy.

After a few listens, though, I realized that it is the same style of music, just with a LOT of new instrumentation thrown in. Electric guitar, piano, horns, and different percussion are used extensively for an entirely new sound. Is it good? I think so, but make sure while buying this that you are buying a heavily 60s influenced CD, not a Jack Johnson influenced CD. Creatively, I would say this a step up. My problem is that it is SO different from his other albums that it will catch most people off guard. Try it, but keep an open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album November 8, 2010
By B. Gray
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I wasnt going to review this album, until I saw all the negative ones. It is totally unfair that such a great album could get such a lousy rating just because a few fans don't like his new direction. I've never listened to matt costa's work before, but at the price of 3.99, the thirty second samples sounded good enough. After listening to the album, I was rather impressed. I've always dismissed Matt as just another dude with an acoustic guitar making radio friendly alterna-pop, which if that was the case, he has clearly gone off in a way better direction. The overall feel of the disc is, as others have mentioned, a pshycadelic 60's feel. On certain songs it almost sounds like ringo is on the drums or george martin is producing. After learning the this album was self produced, I found myself praising it more. This album belongs aside the likes of Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, etc., rather than jack johnson and eric hutchinson. If that's not your thing, sorry, but it's still a good album.

Ok, let me open up by saying i LIKE this new album by Matt Costa. It is well done, produced beautifully and has some really catchy tunes that only Matt could write. All of that being said, i think on this album he at times gets almost too psychedelic and at points doesn't sounds like himself, if this makes ANY sense. The music IS good and to me, it sounds like an artist trying to make an album which expands his listeners horizons as well as his own.

Will it work? I suppose it depends on the willingness of the listener! I know i'll get into the album as it is enjoyable, just not as immediate as some of his other work.

The final song sounds like a spliced version of Devendra Banhart and Matt Costa all wrapped into one.

Highlight tracks: Witchcraft, The Season, Drive , Mobile Chateau

By Matt
Format:Audio CD
When I first put this album on, I was blown away with how different it sounded from his other 2 albums. I was expecting there to be more acoustic feel, and I was way off. I am loving the new album, and I love the psychedelic sound he has given us. The first 5 songs are great, but the album really picks up at (6.)Idol, and onward. I enjoy the 'B' side alot.

There are so many influences on this album from bands of the 1960's, and I hope he keeps it up.

Great album, it took little time to warm up to. And I am sure it will take longer for other listeners, but in the end, fantastic music.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting album June 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So, this sounded like a 1960s style album. (one of his songs just came through my headphones).

The style is not the same as his other albums which I LOVE. this is a different, cooler feel (not cool as in hip but cool as in mellow). While I don't dislike this album I hope he goes back to the older sound for the next release

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! May 13, 2013

I'm a huge Matt Costa fan and for some reason waited to get this album...probably pure laziness, but it was at my expense. It's a great album and definitely gives another vibe to your Costa collection when you're feeling the need for a fix! Great album!
