Despite an overall need to tighten her recordings, we’re taken with soulfully incisive Kristin Larkin who explores the dysfunctions and disappointments of love with a unique vocal rasp that conveys an affecting sadness. “Save Yourself” is a good example of this artist’s strengths and weaknesses: The song is catchy, the lyrics unsettling, the stately string-section is inspired, yet the whole enterprise goes on too long. “Regardless” and “Springtime Sky” are compelling, and benefit from a gentle twang delivered by her supple support players, but these songs tend to drag, as well. Full of soul and substance, these recordings would really zing if given a deft trim here and there.
