S.G. Goodman (from the album Teeth Marks available on Verve Forecast) (by Bryant Liggett)
S.G. Goodman hangs on a fine line between electro-Folkie and experimental Indie Rocker. Very comfortable with the balancing act on her latest, Teeth Marks, Goodman displays a rough-around-edges air with a Folkie vibe, a musician who can be light and airy, even delicate, if need be, yet who will also toss in subtle and experimental sonic accents.
Like in album opener/title track. “Teeth Marks” is a drummer-less cut with gentle picking partnered with angelic backing vocals behind Goodman singing ‘see things my way’ while quiet feedback drifts under the guitar.
S.G. Goodman will then pick things up, “All My Love Is Coming Back To Me” the last-minute of the tune void of vocals, heavy on power chords via a package of Garage Rock. She can also carry the album on vocals alone, if needed. “You Were Someone I Loved” is Indie Rock high and lonesome, a voice only cut that’s sad and lonely.
That sad and lonely phase quickly disappears when a bouncy bass and snare-drum heavy rhythms kick in for “Work Until I Die”. Indie guitar distortion follows for a minute before S.G. Goodman jumps in with vocals that match that bump in the rhythm section, very reminiscent of 80’s Post Punk (Gang of Four, Joy Division).
As great as S.G. Goodman is at the pogo of Garage Punk, she’ll also drop a somber weeper, as witnessed in “Dead Soldiers”. One minute she’ll keep things sad and slow, the next up-beat and thumping, both with an experimental air; S.G. Goodman remains a solid purveyor of plugged-in Folk formed in an experimental-friendly garage. Folk Rock Garage-style.
