Sara Rachele’s new album ‘Scorpio Moon‘ is out at the end of May. Unusually it was recorded straight to tape. Even more unusually it features Binky Griptite and other members of The Dap-Kings (who you’ll recall as Sharon Jones’ band – they also provided Amy Winehouse with her full band sound). ‘Goodbye, Goodbye‘, though, is pure frail folky Americana – a song that seems to teeter forever on the edge of collapse. As Sara Rachele plaintively sings “goodbye, goodbye, you don’t have to say it tonight / Goodbye, goodbye, you don’t have to say it so I will, goodbye ” you can feel your heartbreaking.
