IN SUPPORT OF CHRIS' NEW RECORD "BIDIN' MY TIME" PRODUCED BY TOM PETTY
Overlooked Gem of the Year
Chris Hillman – Bidin’ My Time
On his first solo album in 12 years, original Byrd Hillman mixes new songs with reprises of Byrds classics “The Bells of Rhymney” (featuring David Crosby) and “She Don’t Care About Time”. He hooks up with king Byrd Roger McGuinn on the previously unreleased “Here She Comes Again”, and pulls off masterly covers of the Everly Brothers’ “Walk Right Back” and Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers”. Petty also produced and played guitar and harmonica, in what may be his final recordings.

Prolific at every turn, Matt Costa has taken on the aura of a classic California drifter, spinning records in the midnight hours of his local Laguna Beach radio station, writing by day cataclysmically varied music, from fingerpicked John Fahey like numbers to Beach Boys like pop, to singer songwriter numbers like a young Harry Nillson, to early rock & rollEric Burdon and the Animals, Van Morrison’s Them, the guitar playing and arrangements of Brian Jones. The start of 2017 brings a new found purpose, resolution, and a powerful new cycle of songs harkening to the sunny side and the darker edges of California. With each song speaking from both its own history and experience, Matt is now returning to the studio, embarking on his first full LP in almost five years. Recording at New Monkey Studio (Elliott Smith’s old room in Los Angeles), and produced alongside Peter Matthew Bauer (The Walkmen) & Nick Stumpf (French Kicks, Caveman), this new record takes Matt Costa’s experiments and journeys of the last few years and focuses them into a new and direct statement. There is a classic sound and focus reminiscent of Tom Petty and early Elvis Costello, complete with a strong back beat discovered with his rollicking touring band, and an an acoustic side that plays out as some of Matt's best individual stories put to tape. After a long time wandering, it is now time for a return to the world at large.
