“Ear Candy” is a pretty apt title for this release from Aoede (pronounced “ay-ee-dee”). Lisa Sniderman and David Sands are the duo operating under this decidedly original and meaningful name (Aoede is a muse in mythology). Offering acoustic-rooted singer-songwriter stylings, Aoede conjures a sound all its own yet referential of similar artists such as Aimee Mann. Emotive and emotionally intelligent, “Ear Candy” is tasty for both your aural sensors as well as your soul.
