More Info:

Japanese pressing of 2008 album from the singer/songwriter, his second release on Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records label. 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 wooden pipe, and a box of old 45-speed records from the late 1950s). "I let my imagination wander. Regular life isn't as exciting as an imaginary life." Invigorated by onstage collaborations with tour openers like Los Angeles rockers the 88 and Elvis Perkins, he recorded the album in the spring of 2007 in Santa Ana, even inviting Adam Merrin from the 88 to play keys on a few tracks. This version includes one bonus track, a demo version on 'If You Took to Me'. Universal. 2008.
