“The Guided by Voices tribute album comes out this weekend, and as we approach its Record Store Day release, we’re hearing more and more of what we can look forward to. We’ve already played you covers by Thurston Moore, Cymbals Eat Guitars and Mass Solo Revolt, and now it’s time to draw your attention to another.
La Sera, a side project by Vivian Girl Katy Goodman, provide a take on the track “Watch Me Jumpstart” that proves just how much GBV has influenced the new generation of indie music stars. (…)”

“Since the release of their self-titled debut in 2008, Vivian Girls have been synonymous with fast-paced garage-rock—a unique sound that is part noise-fueled grunge, part 1960s girl-group pop. If you listen to just the first eighteen seconds of “The Other Girls,” the opening song on their third album, Share the Joy, which is being released tomorrow, April 12, it will seem as though nothing has changed; we’re treated to the same fuzz-heavy guitars and pummeling drums that have driven almost all of their work to date—and is particularly reminiscent of “When I’m Gone,” the standout track from 2009’s Everything Goes Wrong. However, don’t be fooled. For those of us with an attention span of more than half a minute, it’s easy to hear a seismic shift in direction from the Brooklyn-based trio: Out of nowhere the galloping pace slows to a gentle trot, the guitar loosens up, and lead singer Cassie Ramone’s voice seems to take on a wounded quality as she chants noticeably more reflective lyrics, such as “I don’t want to live my life like the other girls.” All of this works to send a clear message: Vivian Girls are a band in transition. But transitioning into what? (…)”
