Live Video: My Goodness

photo by Suzi Pratt

Like fellow blues-rockers The Black Keys, Seattle’s My Goodness specialize in an energetic, Jon Spencer-style griminess, spurred by the duo’s minimal guitarist-drummer dynamic. Guitarist/vocalist Joel Schneider swaggers through his lyrics with the confidence of a seasoned frontman, while drummer Ethan Jacobson provides a rollicking but steady rhythm section. It’s a pure distillation of the finest aspects of blue, rock, and punk into a cohesive whole. At times, the inherent scuzzy quality of the band’s tunes make it sound like they’ve been scraped off the floor of a dive bar, but that’s a completely positive thing. It’s the band’s dirtiness that makes them so good. My Goodness recently stopped by the KEXP studios for a thrilling peek into their live set, which you can watch below.
