Shara Worden’s voice shows up in so many places, from her recordings and tours with The Decemberists and Sufjan Stevens to her collaborations with the disparate likes of Laurie Anderson, Jedi Mind Tricks and opera composer David Lang. The Michigan native is even the secret singing voice of Jane Lynch’s character on Glee. But Worden makes her biggest impact with her own group, My Brightest Diamond. “I can dream my future,” Worden discloses on “Lover Killer,” from MBD’s latest album, This Is My Hand. That bright future includes dance-floor beats mixed with a colorful art-rock inventiveness, segueing occasionally into cabaret intimacy and dream-pop balladry. She wraps herself in a cloak of exotic Eastern chimes on “Looking at the Sun” as her supple vocals spiral upward ethereally.
