20 Best Albums of 2012: #12

12. Lavender Diamond, Incorruptible Heart
Lavender Diamond owes a great deal of its appeal as a band to its mesmerizing frontwoman Becky Stark. Stark is such a presence that it would be easy to let her incredible soprano dominate the record; instead, she and her bandmates, aided by producer Damian Kulash of OK Go, have crafted a rich and alluring tapestry of sound. "I Don't Recall" glides along, "Light My Way" is euphoric dance pop and "Come Home" is quiet and fragile. Incorruptible Heart may seem innocuous at first, but its songs soon burrow their way into your subconscious, thanks to their charm and effervescent nature.
