Loving Rachel Goodrich hasn't always been easy.
Sure, she's the Magic City's ukelele-playing indie-pop princess, whose adorably twisted, intensely endearing ditties get stuck in your head like an extremely catchy case of brain worm. So what's not to love?
But when Rachel suddenly split for Los Angeles last year, we were totally heartbroken.
Luckily, her self-titled sophomore album arrived in the mail like an 11-part love letter, brimming with supersweet songs -- especially 38-second sing-along "G-Dino" and bright, bouncy "Light Bulb" -- that kept our totally out-of-control crush alive, even with Rachel all the way out on the West Coast.
