Editorial Reviews

Born 26 years ago in Memphis, Tennessee, to hippie devotees of the religious cult The Holy Order Of MANS, Larkin Grimm was raised by multiple 'parents' in the commune environment of the cult until age six, Grimm spent the remainder of her youth in the Appalachian mountains of Georgia after the cult disbanded. With five siblings and challenged economic circumstances, she won a full scholarship to Yale to study art. After temporarily dropping out of school to hang out for a couple years with eco warriors, vagabonds, and sexual deviants in Olympia, Washington, Grimm returned to Yale, where she was a member of Dirty Projectors for a while. Upon graduation, she moved to Providence, where she was an active participant in the city's noise scene and made a few albums of improv/free-form songs for Secret Eye Records. Grimm's taste for music comes from her old-time fiddler and singer father and her folksinger mother. She naturally developed into an absolutely gifted singer, fingerpicker, and multi-instrumentalist. She's shared bills with Devendra Banhart, Spires That In The Sunset Rise, Espers, Brightblack Morning Light, Entrance, Viking Moses, The Microphones, and Old Time Relijun.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Record of 2008. December 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The art work accompanying this record is weird and wonderful, slightly disturbing we see the protagonist wild and sexual with eyes in the palms of her hands, bruised and wounded women jump around with pitchforks and whips, a man sits at a machine with a giant vein cover hand and amidst all this an illustration of what undoubtedly seems to be Karen Dalton, sits serene with her 12 string banjo.

The 15 songs on the record brilliantly reflect this earthy, sexual, political and spiritual image. Larkin sings inspired lyrics, like "I'm no hooker with a heart of gold, my hooks are sharp, my heart is cold." and "I'm wanking in the corner wait for a nuclear war." I guessed this isn't token chick lit feminism. She moves through country, folk and Asian-Indian music flawlessly, Larkin is an amazing gifted artist, her voice is soft and sonorous, seductive and loaded with intention and conviction for the songs, she is fearless and natural an artist as they come, and in 15 tracks doesn't put a foot wrong. I really do recommend this, it is by far the best record released this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant July 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This CD is the next best thing to seeing and hearing Larkin live. Her live shows are transcendent. She said in one of her shows that Parplar is the imaginary galaxy where female orgasms come from. Her shows take you there, astral projecting, guided meditation and a mix of old time music, freak folk and just plain great music.
