Goddess – “Paradise” – [Self-release]
With their splendid mix of heavenly vocals and instruments such as horsehair fiddle, French horn, lap dulcimer, tambourine, toy guitar, keyboard, piano, and pump organ, New York band Goddess rules. Other reviews call it haunting psych, and maybe it is some of that, but I think it’s better described as earthy folk. Fran Pado and Tamalyn Miller harmonize with each other in an enchanting way while Andy Newman creates some magical music. This is a winner.
