La Sera

La Sera is the dreamy pop songwriting vehicle for Brooklyn bassist Katy Goodman -- of D.I.Y. punk band Vivian Girls -- who began penning solo songs in February 2009. Initial demos were sent to good friend filmmaker and music producer Brady Hall, who fell for the charming, ethereal vocals and '50s pop influences that Goodman exudes; he re-recorded material at his home studios in Seattle. After hearing the warm pop sounds that Hall had created from the acoustic guitar and tambourine demos she sent, Goodman traveled to Seattle to record the vocals and mix the tracks. With a rotating lineup that featured friends Jenn Prince and Scott Shannon, La Sera embodies the laid-back and open feel of the project and its ongoing members.

After completion of the sessions with Hall, the outfit signed to Hardly Art Records in 2010 and subsequently released the 7" "Never Come Around" in November 2010. The songs touch on an array of emotions, with heartbreak, love, and death all covered in each song with three minutes of dreamy guitar and reverb-washed harmonies. A second 7" was released in January 2011, "Devils Hearts Grow Gold," with a quaint B-side cover of "Dedicated to the One I Love," originally by the "5" Royales. Released in 2011, the band's self-titled debut is a collection of beautifully constructed tunes with a softer feel than the Vivian Girls had, one where Goodman revels in her dreamy pop creations. A video was created by Hall in his home studio for the single "Never Come Around," which is as gruesome as the song is thick with winding vocals and sweet melodies. The album's intricate cover art was designed by Vivian Girls bandmate Cassie Ramone.

For her second album under the La Sera name, Goodman enlisted Rob Barbato (of Darker My Love) to play guitar and produce and Dan Allaire (of the Brian Jonestown Massacre) to drum, while she played bass. Tim Presley (of White Fence and Darker My Love) and Tony Bevilaqua (of Spinnerette) also helped out. Sees the Light was released by Hardly Art in the spring of 2012.

In early 2014, the Vivian Girls went their separate ways, leaving Goodman free to concentrate on La Sera. The band's third album was produced by L.A. musician Tod Wisenbaker. He also contributed lead guitar, with Daniel Gomez on rhythm guitar and Michael Gleeson on drums. The Pretenders and punk-influenced Hour of the Dawn was released in 2014 on Hardly Art. ~ Scott Kerr, Rovi
