Sugarplum Fairies (Starfish)
3.5 stars out of 5

Originally a duo comprised of Silvia Ryder and Ben Bohm, Austrian indie outfit Sugarplum Fairies parted ways last year after five albums together. Ryder decided to press on with a rotating lineup of guest musicians and her first album without Bohm is the rock-solid “Godspeed & Silver Linings.”

Sugarplum Fairies CDRyder’s haunting vocals anchor the 12-track release and she puts it to great use on standout cuts “Monochrome,” “Pollyanna,” “St. Andrews Place,” “Different Planes (Out of the Blue),” the title track and “Moment of Fame.” (Jeffrey Sisk)
