In the OC Weekly, my review of Larkin Grimm’s new album

Really, really love Larkin Grimm, great songwriter and performer, and her first album for Young God Records, Parplar, is easily a standout of the year for me. To quote from my review:

Totaling 15 songs, Parplar, recorded with the assistance of [Young God boss Michael] Gira and a number of guest performers, is still straight-up Grimm, with the opening song’s beautifully performed first lyric, “Who told you you’re going to be all right?/They were wrong,” setting the unsettled tone. This isn’t winsome never-neverland, but a cascade of fractured emotions and wit.
