The La Sera seed has finally germinated, and surprisingly quickly. Just over a month ago we learned of “Never Come Around”, the first song from a project that came across as a passing distraction on the margins of Vivian Girls. The song was released yesterday, as the A-side of a first single by La Sera that will gain a follow-up in the form of a long player due out on 15th February. The debut album by redhead Katy Goodman (a.k.a. Kickball Katy) has no title (for all intents and purposes, it’ll be called “La Sera”) and features twelve songs inspired by “an attraction to early pop hits from the 1950′s and ethereal choral vocals.” These are the sonic coordinates of an album with a certain sheen of fantasy in which Katy muses on “death, love, and love lost within the span of two minute choral pop blisters”. The cover artwork is by the blonde Cassie Ramone, her Vivian Girls soulmate. Pre-order here.
