You know how you can sometimes create your own soundtrack for a certain period in life simply by listening to the same album over and over… I have found myself listening to La Sera‘s album ‘Sees the light’ now over and over. This album will definitely be my soundtrack for the summer.
La Sera is the new project of Katy Goodman (Vivian Girls, All Saints Day). Sees the light is the second album and it came out in March, earlier this year.
Here is a few words from Hardly Art about the album;
Where the first La Sera album was super-dreamy in its layered vocals, Sees The Light is more direct, more aggressive; almost a soundtrack to a lost drive-in movie classic. This is not an album for half-hearted partakers in the heartache scene: just an all-consuming love for punk as pop and pop as punk. Songs such as “Don’t Stay” soar away into the stratosphere, solemn and possessed of singular beauty. “Real Boy” is playfully driven in comparison: like being whisked away to a tropical island, while “Drive On” is tear-laden and full of hidden menace like a David Lynch film.
