La Sera
$8

Upon advance listening, La Sera's second album, Sees the Light, evokes the absolute best nuances of '60s girl groups—rollicking, saccharine melodies and captivating vocals—without the careful poses, the matching outfits, and most importantly, the blaring naiveté. This is not Katy Goodman's first time around the block, and while her solo project began as hazy pop-punk experimentation, it seems she's found a way to hone in on that classic sweetness without hemming in the rougher edges. For instance, songs like "Break My Heart" or "Please Be My Third Eye" contain seemingly simple, beckoning hooks sung luminously over a guitar whose distorted drive could only be described as reckless; it's a startling juxtaposition at first, but it's not long before everything makes perfect sense.
