Devils Hearts Grow Gold by La Sera
A few days before embarking on La Sera's first UK tour, mastermind Katy Goodman (vox/bass) and hired guns Jennifer Prince (guitar/vox) and Jonathan Weinberg (drums/dry humor), stopped by Room 205 to blast through a few songs from Katy's upcoming full-length on Hardly Art.
Since joining all-female punk trio Vivian Girls during the spring of 2007, vocalist/bassist Katy Goodman's dreamy DIY talents have sent waves of admiration throughout the independent music community. After touring the world, releasing a handful of well-received records, and starting the label Wild World with her Vivian Girls band mates, Katy played in the short-lived dream-pop band All Saints Day and released a hard-to-find self-titled 7" of spectral pop tunes. In February 2010 she began working on fresh material for her new side band, La Sera. According to Goodman, the project's inspiration springs from an attraction to ethereal choral vocals and pop hits of the 1950's. Indeed.
