Lavender Diamond - Imagine Our Love review

Lavender Diamond - Imagine Our Love (2007, Matador Records)

Instantly, when I first heard the Lavender Diamond song "You Broke My Heart" I fell in love with it. That song just feels like the swelling of a heart until it bursts. After posting it on several message boards, I found that other people's reactions were either the same, or they vehemently hated it. Several gave stories about how terrible Lavender Diamond was as an opening act, I think for the Decemberists. Who knows which side you might come down on. In fact, I'm not even sure where Boone stands on them yet.

That song is not on this, their first full-length album, but Imagine Our Love does begin with quite a similar heart-thumper of a tune, "Oh No." This music is etheral, gorgeous and entirely heartfelt... and if for some reason or another, that doesn't translate to their live show, then fuck it. Just spin this album again, because it's a thing of beauty.
