Ladies and gentlemen it’s time once again time for a Live Music Podcast public service announcement or LMP PSA for short. After many years of listening to audience tapings I have found an easy way to increase the listening pleasure for recordings with less than perfect audio quality. Simply switch out your speakers for headphones. I can’t give you an explanation of the physics to why they sound better through headphones, but next time you are ready to throw out a sub par recording try out this tip before you do so.
Here at the Live Music Podcast I do my best to bring you only the best sounding recordings but even a good recording is usually improved through headphones. For this episode especially, low quality shouldn’t be an issue since the recording I have comes straight from the soundboard.
Matt Costa is pretty much what you’d expect from the same record label as Jack Johnson and G Love and Special Sauce. Of course I mean that it the best way possible, as his songs are in the same vein of laid back chill music with soul. The music I have here ranges from the very catchy upbeat single “Sunshine”, to the slower melodic “Astair”, to the electric guitar and harp driven “Emergency Call”.
