My Brightest Diamond
I first got hooked on My Brightest Diamond with her 2008 album A Thousand Shark's Teeth, so I was really pleased to see this new one drop. All Things Will Unwind is up to her high standards and will thrill all fans, and probably garner a few more. Check it out, you won't be sorry.

Filmed in Berlin, at the MichelBerger Mystery Music Festival, August 2010.
"After the concert I finally dared to ask her what I wanted to ask her that morning, to sing us this lullaby that struck me down. It's Sunday morning, a morning of hangovers. The whole hotel seems suspended in the air. We ask her to get to the bar, to make it sing for her, to sing for her son (for whom she had written this song). We erase ourselves. She, she doesn't. After we're done filming, I cry. She cries too."
Here's some behind the scenes, in front of the scenes, video regarding the making of this terrific new album.
