New CD Release: Incorruptible Heart by Lavender Diamond

Lavender Diamond front woman Becky Stark may have made the cheeriest breakup record ever, but that’s how it goes in fairyland, where even at its achiest, busted love has a silver lining. On her third full-length album (Paracadute, $15) the neo-folk siren’s ethereal vocals float over heartbreak ballads, some intimate, some anthemic. Every time the mood threatens to grow a little too fey, she anchors the songs with a voice as bright as sunlight.

Incorruptible Heart is available today.
