Woody Guthrie and Tiny Tim aren’t names that usually come to mind when you think about the Miami music scene. But retro-folk songstress and Miami native Rachel Goodrich, who lists them among her main influences, would have you thinking they’re as synonymous with South Florida as a flamingo-pink stretch Hummer.

Although her kazoo-infused 2009 debut album, Tinker Toys, stood in stark contrast from the glossy R&B and pumping hip-hop Miami is known for, the collection of playful love songs went a long way in crowning her as the queen of Miami’s vibrant indie-folk scene, which is characterized by a charming blend of country folk and western-swing livened by hints of vaudeville.

Goodrich’s self-titled second album, out this week, demonstrates a slight change in direction, possibly prompted by her relocation to Los Angeles at the end of last year; tracks such as the smoldering “Fire” and stirring piano ballad “Let Me Go” suggest she has traded much of her wide-eyed kookiness for a more delicate introspection, which certainly works in her favor. At the same time, the shouty refrain on “Na Na Na” has an element of hip-hop hidden inside it, an observation that shocked Goodrich when it was put to her last week.

“That definitely wasn’t intentional,” she explains over the phone from L.A. “But, to be honest, I don’t really do anything intentionally. I listen to a lot of music, so maybe it brainwashes me and I don’t even know it.”
