“Jen hit up TBD Fest last week and chats with Katy Goodman of La Sera about their new album Hour of the Dawn out now via Hardly Art, band dynamics, shredding, the heat and what’s next for Girl Gang following their first public social at The Smell in Downtown Los Angeles. It was hot, sweaty and the fest DJ was really on some sweet Disney vibe. Thanks again Katy! Shred on!”
La Sera on Singing Like a Child and Her Secret Album
“If Katy Goodman’s first group, Vivian Girls, embodied the spirit (if not the sound) of late-’70s Ramones — pretty, primitive guitar-based pop with a nihilistic edge — her third record as La Sera, Hour of the Dawn, is like late-’80s Ramones. A great singer skillfully executing hit melodies derived from ’60s girl groups, Goodman is backed by aggressive yet controlled guitar playing and slick production. The songs themselves cover a range of emotions with complexity and nuance that is so often lacking in mainstream pop, which gives the album a darker edge — like if California hardcore guitar hero Rikk Agnew’s post-Adolescents solo work had been collaboration with Belinda Carlisle.
Tobi Vail reached Goodman by phone to talk about Stephin Merritt, writing a secret record and her new album.”
