Friday Feature - La Sera

This week's Friday Feature is La Sera is an indie pop band from Los Angeles, USA featuring vocals from Katy Goodman of Vivian Girls. La Sera's sound is much gentler than that of Vivian Girls. Their first album La Sera in particular is a dreamy affair, seeking inspiration from 1950s and 60s pop but even more bouncy second album Sees the Light is filled with summery instrumentals, a touch of reverb and Katy's gentle, breathy, flowing vocals. Listening to La Sera is like all the fun of a midnight beach party but without all the sand getting in your shoes.

Where will I have heard them before?

Katy is a member of punk rock band Vivian Girls.

La Sera spent the majority of 2012 touring, including opening for Father John Misty.

Featured Song: Devils Hearts Grow Gold

Where can I hear more?

You can sample two songs on La Sera's Hardly Art page and another two on their page. You can then download their two albums La Sera (2011) and Sees the Light (2012).
What is their website?

Next week: Because I'm enjoying them so much...Dry the River


  1. I love your music suggestions, I will definitely give them a listen :) Also, I LOVE Dry the River! I saw them live, and they keep into the crowd to do an acoustic song for the encore. It was amazing xx

    1. Oh wow! How lucky! I'd love to go to a concert.

      Here is a playlist I made for the music I featured in 2012 (it's easier than reading every post lol)
