A Thousand Shark's Teeth


Brooklyn-based My Brightest Diamond -- the pet project of Shara Worden -- is releasing a new album on Sufjan Stephen's label, Asthmatic Kitty Records, on June 17, 2008.

You might have caught Worden at SXSW this year (I didn't because I didn't get to go for the first time in 11 years . . . boo and hiss). The new album, A Thousand Shark's Teeth was inspired by everything from Tom Waits to Alice In Wonderland yet it actually sounds totally unique. Her classical background -- she has a degree in opera -- shines through in a really fresh way.

They don't have any new tracks on their Myspace just yet but check back frequently. When the new songs finally post, be sure to check out the opening track "Inside a Boy".

I bet you can hear some new stuff at the New York (April 2 @ Joe's Pub) or Los Angeles (May 20 & 21 @ Hotel Cafe) dates.
