Another Alien

This music is the passport into the creative downtempo genre that now illuminates the lounge scenes....It has been granted a citizenship into the passage of musical greats like Portishead and Zero-7.... Sonic Diary is an ambient journey into cultural reformations and repressed anger in society's daily lifestyles....The vocals...the beats...the keyboards are dynamic! I've been waiting for you Costanza and thank you....Thank you for granting us our Visa into Costanza's profound art of music....

Deliriously beautiful...Deliriously orgasmic!

There have been precious few times in my lifetime where I have felt the need to review an artists' work. That will not change here...but not for the reasons that one might think. I simply lack the language to communicate how listening to this divinely-gifted woman makes me feel. Are there words in any known language to convey what it feels like to hear 'Burqa' for the very first time...or the 1,000th? To explain the sheer brilliance of the 'Promises' cover by Fugazi?

And then there's 'Silence' and 'I've been waiting for you'. I often feel as if I'm sitting in a chair made of clouds, the air moist and sweet, when I hear her songs. Constanza's songs reside in that sweet space that exists between waking and dreaming.

I have never had any particular religious beliefs, but if Heaven is real and not a man-made construct...the pathway to its gates can surely be found in the pages of Costanza's Sonic Diary.

About Costanza

Italian trip-hop artist Costanza (full name: Costanza Francavilla) started her musical career by founding Etnia, a band in which she played guitar and wrote songs. After the group split in 1998, Costanza moved to London and began working on solo projects, as well as delving into electronica. In 2001, one of her demos found its way into the hands of Adrian Thaws, better known as Tricky, who was so impressed that he contacted Costanza about collaborating with him. They began working together in 2002; Costanza would go on to make an appearance on Tricky's 2003 release, Vulnerable. After appearances at European festivals, Costanza released the Zerokilled EP in 2005. She settled in Brooklyn soon after and made plans for a full-length album. ~ Katherine Fulton
