For their new album, Sidereal Time, the Harvey Girls made apparent use of a 20-dollar guitar, which seamlessly augmented their veritable arsenal of sounds—strings, saw, banjo, and a Turkish thing called a saz also feature on the record. Recorded chiefly by husband-and-wife duo Hiram Lucke and Melissa Rodenbeek, it continues the Harvey Girls' string of lovely, weird psych-pop, shrugging off any easy reference point (the group cites baroque pop, bluegrass, and early Disney soundtracks as touchstones, but nothing on Sidereal Time really sounds like any of those). Lucke has added a rhythm section to the Harvey Girls—Rodenbeek is not part of the live band—which gives their oddball, naturalistic folk a more muscular, progressive tint. NED LANNAMANN
