Mima Good, whose real name is Raechel Rosen and stage name is an amalgam of murdered witches from the Salem era, released her debut EP today, Good Girl. It's a bluesy pop record a few years in the making that deals with abuse in her prior band, at the hands of a previous partner and bandmate.
Raechel Rosen, aka Mima Good, doesn't want to dwell on the trauma she's been through. She's focused on her future. Last year, Rosen released Good Girl an emotional five-track EP about an abusive relationship. While working through her experience in intense therapy sessions, Rosen turned to music to relieve her heaviest burdens.
Mima Good is NYC-born and based songwriter Raechel Rosen, whose sound and aesthetic espouses a contemporary pop sensibility with a darker atmosphere of synths, organs and guitars. The result is a moody, soulful sound that somehow calls to mind both Billie Eilish and Billie Holliday simultaneously.
Fervent readers and movie buffs know Holly Golightly, the country-turned-cafe-society girl from Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Golightly (played by the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn) has an independent air, an entrancing one; she's a character who literary analysts have studied as, among other things, a feminist icon.

Witches talk back nowadays. Raechel Rosen, aka Mima Good, walks an interesting tightrope thematically; her music weaves together the historical oppression of women with music that more readily brings to mind a candlelit boudoir. It's the playful banter between hi-concept undertones and sexuality that make her
If being a good girl is doing as grandma says, we're screwed. It's imposed on every female identifying person that there's a specific protocol to follow in order to be considered good-sit straight, close your legs, don't sleep around, don't look alive!

BY LIZ VON KLEMPERER with PHOTOS BY LEAH BANK On October 25, Greenpoint's Good Room was transformed into a femme haven for the second Femmequerade Ball. The mission of the gathering was to both rally against toxic masculinity and honor the divine feminine through music, dance and revelry.

Intending to give a voice to artists frequently rendered voiceless in mainstream society, co-organizers A.R. Canzano '18 and Sara McCartney '19 selected an all-female line-up for its first show of the year, McCartney said.
Dozens of women and femmes will descend upon the Good Room in Greenpoint this Thursday to party until that oppressive cis-white-male toxic-masculinity is done for. Or at least they're gonna try.
