Shimmying into Godmother is like slowly immersing yourself in a rich and wondrous nursery rhyme delight. American singer songwriter Josephine Foster sets out on opening track Hum Menina with an acoustic guitar and folky floaty voice before opening the floodgates to a sea of swirling synths. We are dangled on a golden thread in a magical psych folk dreamland.

You might fear that the weird electronics could overtake and overwhelm the fragile double-tracked voice and careful strumming, yet Josephine is toying with us because instead the tender voice remains on top of the mix and its message is amplified by the otherworldly synths. Beautiful and beguiling, mellow and melodic. What an absolute enchanting treat.
