Lavender Diamond

Cavalry of Light CD

A nice-price reissue of the self-released EP from Los Angeles psych-folk up-and-comers LAVENDER DIAMOND. Led by the angelic vocals of BECKY STARK, the band deliver four sweet songs performed with guitar, piano, percussion, and strings. Lovely.
 
Primarily a vehicle for the astonishing vocals and buoyant worldview of Becky Stark, the Los Angeles-based Lavender Diamond's take on the dying art of the perfect pop song is as elemental as it is ambitious though their forthcoming Matador full-length, Imagine Our Love (due the eighth of May), is more of the latter.
 
Joined by the crack ensemble of drummer Ron Rege Jr. (an accomplished cartoonist whose work has adorned Lavender Diamond sleeves and posters), guitarist Jeff Rosenberg and pianist Steve Gregoropolous (formerly of The Wild Stares, Wild Stares Chamber Orchestra), Lavender Diamond have stunned audiences across the U.S. with equal portions of deft musicianship, disarming humor, bucketloads of charisma, and most of all...Ms. Stark's mindblowing voice.
