Costa Music

Joseph Costa, formerly of L'altra, has delved out on his own to put together Lighter Subects, a nine track affair that he's released under the name Costa Music. It's a collection of mesmerizing electronic chamber soundscapes that drift along dreamily, taking the listener with it. As the title (and the cover) suggests, although primarily electronic, there are no thumping bass lines here or endless looping sound bites, just soaring instrumentals that are easy to get lost in. Several times I've played this album and have been surprised that it's over and I'm not sure where the last 40 minutes went to.

Besides expressing himself musically, Joseph is also a photographer, and you can see some of his work here. Experience the following tracks to taste the floating feeling of his audible work.

Visit his website, his label Still Records, and become his friend on MySpace.
