Album Review

Cossa, Benji – “Vault Volume One ” – [Magic Marker Records]

mitch   8/30/2006   A Library, CD

The cream of the crop from ten years of home taping, BENJI
COSSA gets a proper full-length release at last with these 17
tracks (recorded between 1995 and 2000). Mostly stripped to
the bone production-wise, with ukulele/guitar/potluck percussion
joining bittersweet relationship reveries of the luckless-in-love
‘When you said our love was like lightning
here comes the thunder
and ‘I’m afraid of the noise?.’

Written amidst peregrine wanderings taking him from Providence
RI to Portland OR to Sacramento CA & finally Brooklyn (where he
currently resides), COSSA bears his heart with unabashed tales
of melodic misadventures and covetous constraints – all quality-
crafted, listener friendly & back burner warm. MITCH November 2005
