Umberto

 

continued

The last piece of the puzzle is Pensiero's lyrics. I've been reading a lot of Sylvia Plath lately and even downloaded a few MP3s of the poet reading her work, and at times the same demons that tortured the late author seem to be after Umberto as well. Most of Umberto's lyrics address being alone, finding love, losing love, and while this is, after all, just a record, Umberto has a gift for making you believe that every word, every screaming noise, is real and true.

Because Umberto's music isn't exactly the kind of thing most Ann Arborites want to listen to while sipping five-buck coffee drinks, her live gigs are rare and special events. So you don't want to miss her at Crazy Wisdom Bookstore on Saturday, July 22, where she'll be part of a triple bill with Misty Lyn and Emily Bate.
