The Grand Undoing is the musical alias for a singer-songwriter named Seth Goodman who grew up in the outskirts of Boston. As an only child, the record player became a dependable companion. With time Seth developed a taste for classic country and roots music, art forms that would become his musical bedrock as he sought to express himself an artist. His first expressions were contained in an album titled ‘Appeasing the Sick‘, which he introduced to fans with the free download ‘There’s Only So Many Nights’. The 2011 release was a jarring yet melodious fusion of psychedelic rock and Americana with a hint of jazz; a musical experiment few would find the courage or have the knowhow to pull off. But pull it off The Grand Undoing did, and he repeated the trick in 2014 with ‘White Space Flavors and Parties On TV‘. By now his growing fanbase was getting used to the way Goodman could mix up a range of moods in the course of an album; from carefree and dance-ready to deeply reflective. Such is the depth of songwriting talent this off-the-beaten-track artist lays claim to.
Seth’s latest project is ‘Sparks Rain Down From The Lights Of Love‘, a 10-song CD that will be ready for order on September 30. In this new album, TGU spreads his stylistic wings even further, encompassing even more sub-genres. Evidence of this is heard in the first single ‘Most Of All We Just Go Around’, recently premiered on Nooga, who described the song as “psych-influenced indie rock and pop landscapes where the borders between genres are blurred almost beyond recognition”. There is an uplifting air in the aggressive drums, sprightly guitars, lively bass and passionate vocals, if not necessarily the lyrics. Seth couldn’t have picked a better way to sell the latest installment of his eclectic sound.
