My Brightest Diamond :: Be Brave

I wasn't a huge fan of My Brightest Diamond until I heard Shara Worden's vocal work on Clogs' fantastic LP The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton. In the album Worden shifted her voice to a more operatic style that really set her apart, both in terms of talent and delivery, from other indie female vocalists.

On the first two cuts of My Brightest Diamond's new album, All Things Will Unwind, Worden returns to a more traditional (read: no broken champagne glasses) vocal delivery without sacrificing the mystical orchestral feel of her work with Clogs. I'm of the opinion that My Brightest Diamond is at her best when she unleashes, and with these two tracks there is hope that the new album won't disappoint.
