My Goodness’ connection to the Seattle music they grew up on is strikingly audible. Bands from Nirvana and Soundgarden, to bands from the early 00’s Seattle hardcore scene such as Botch, Blood Brothers, Murder City Devils, and Horkonen were on heavy rotation for Joel and Any throughout their formative years. Dig deeper still and you find them tapping into a rich seam of blues, old and new - from Muddy Waters through Junior Kimbrough and RL Burnside to the musical sass of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Though a very different prospect, the energy, intensity and attitude of hardcore and the groove of the blues feeds into everything My Goodness does. Ultimately it’s all rock music though. Big, Throbbing rock music.
