"This next one is very sad," Lavender Diamond singer Becky Stark warned. As the band opened the delicate ballad "Everybody's Heart's Breaking Now," listeners of The Afternoon Show on KEXP realized how true that was.

The heart of the band would have to be Stark's operatic soprano, which soars over the song's quiet, waltz-like cadence. The soft-spoken singer leaned back as the force of her voice filled the performance space with warmth and beauty; it almost looked as if she was wiping away tears by the end of it. It was powerful enough to soothe a broken heart, if not heal it outright.
