CT seven-piece Goodnight Blue Moon have recently released their latest offering of contemporary Americana, steeped with sincerity and reverence to traditional roots. A rich array of string instruments and cleverly arranged vocals find the group’s third studio album to be their most meticulous yet.
With such a large cast of members, “grand” is an unavoidable word, invoking impressive productions like The Decemberists’ What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, Anais Mitchell’s Hadestown, and Bright Eyes’ Cassadaga.
Painted with cherry-black strings, lemon-yellow lap steel, and a rustic palette of traditional sounds, Dawning Dream is a record with clear direction, filled with as many feel-good moments as those of contemplation.
Goodnight Blue Moon will be playing The Acoustic in Bridgeport on June 16th. Event page here.
