Rachel Goodrich's Unveils "Monstermix," Sets Propaganda Gig
Tagging Goodrich simply as a singer-songwriter would be like calling Charlie Sheen just an actor. Gross underestimation for the sake of genre classifications! Anyhow, this breezy new album (streaming here) has many pleasures, including the sing-along bait "Na Na Na," kazoo anthem with a hint of gangsta, "Light Bulb," and a quick snippet called "G Dino" in which she pegs herself a "gangsta dinosaur."
If "G Dino" is the finest Goodrich track you've ever heard, might we recommend the "Monstermix," hosted by NYLON magazine. It's included in this seven-minute smattering of beats and silliness featuring several unreleased compositions. Think of Micachu & the Shapes' constantly evolving pop scuzz, merry go round samples, squealing children, and all of that lo-fi madness that colors a live show headed by RG.
Also on the bill for the evening is Miami's volatile new wave rockers Pretty Please, Atlanta's eclectic tunesmiths Quiet Hooves, and what sounds like Aphex Twin with vocals, Nite Club vs. the Little Star Dweller from Brooklyn. Intrigue through and through.
Rachel Goodrich. With Pretty Please, Quiet Hooves, and Nite Club vs. the Little Star Dweller. 8 p.m. Sunday, March 27 at Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth. Tickets cost $5. Click here.
