This is an atmospheric and rural-sounding debut by Costanzo. She has a clear, lovely voice and writes story-songs like Dar Williams does. The voices of her narrators are as strong as you can wish for, whether it's the woman in "Send me back to Ohio" who wants to be buried by her first love or the black man who compares his life to that of Sylvia Plath. Musically she's restrained but hardly lacking in skill or imagination. Costanzo has a very real talent and this is an intriguing first step. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
