On September 25, Paracadute will release Incorruptible Heart, the long-awaited follow-up to Lavender Diamond‘s 2007 full-length debut, Imagine Our Love. The Los Angeles-based quartet – comprising Becky Stark (vocals), Jeff Rosenberg (guitar), Steve Gregoropolous (piano) and Ron Regé Jr. (drums) – recorded the album with OK Go‘s Damian Kulash, Jr. and longtime Flaming Lips collaborator Dave Fridmann at Fridmann’s upstate New York base. Incorruptible Heart will be available in CD, vinyl and digital formats. (See below for track listing.) Lavender Diamond’s official website launched today and the band will announce tour dates shortly. Lavender Diamond is streaming “Oh My Beautiful World” on SoundCloud and offering the song for download on the newly-launched website.
“With its swoops and flutters and trills, her singing is one of the indie world’s most joyful noises, a free-flowing river of feeling…Stark’s melodies tumble out of her like she’s making them up as she goes,” said The Village Voice in a review of Lavender Diamond’s debut album.
