What? Oh, just some screen caps of the editing process for the upcoming Anthony da Costa music video. All featuring our lovely actress Lindsey, in San Francisco.
Here’s your end-of-the-week treat… Matt Singer’s acoustic version of his song “Perfect Lawns”. Matt took advantage of the nice weather (aka before it started raining for days here in NYC) and played this pretty song just for you.
Download this song or his entire album, The Build, on the Family Records store.
Haven’t seen Matt Singer live? Or can’t wait to see him again? You can see him in a show of a slightly different kind at St. Ann’s Warehouse at the end of this month. He’s is teaming up with puppeteer Eric Wright to perform their new puppetry musical about the human experience of food politics, What Are You Eating, at the Puppet Lab at St. Ann’s Warehouse. Mr. Wright’s performance credits include Madama Butterfly (Metropolitan Opera) and Powerhouse (NYC Fringe Festival) and he is a co-founder of The Puppet Kitchen, whose clients include The Public Theater (Hamlet) and FAO Schwartz / Folkmanis Puppets.
PS: You’ll get a new video from Matt each Friday, leading up to the release of his next single from “The Build”. Score!

Fun fact: on this day in 1981, Dan Rather made his debut as the lead anchorman of “The CBS Evening News.”
Better fun fact: on this day in 2012, Lauren Glucksman had ALREADY been lead anchorlady of “FamilyRecordsTV” for 2 days. So we all know who the winner is here. If you haven’t seen Episode 1 yet, you can watch it right here.
Episode 3 of “Matt and Martin” is now LIVE! This week, the two pals attempt to record a demo of “All This Joy.” Needless to say, Martin has his own ideas about how the song should go. Watch and enjoy, catch Episodes 1 & 2 on Matt Singer’s tumblr, and look out for a new episode next Friday.
