Diana Darby
Fantasia Ball (Delmore Recordings)

By: Alex Steininger

Recorded at home on a 4-track cassette machine, Diana Darby's Fantasia Ball flourishes, her weepy, hushed voice and the muffled acoustic guitar conveying intimacy and urgency. Dark and moody, the songs sound right at home when you're alone, comforting you as you both rejoice at each other's company.
