With a new single on Portland-based Water Wing Records (an offshoot of Mississippi Records) and a cover story in Seattle's The Stranger, La Luz is proverbially blowing up. The two tracks on that 7-inch also appear on the band's rippingly good Damp Face EP, recorded in a trailer park in Bothell, Washington—five tracks that stick you in the middle of a surfy, stony, dance-y, girl-group garage party. The all-female foursome's members come from other Seattle area bands like the Curious Mystery and the Pica Beats, and despite not being together a full year yet, La Luz has already mastered a spindly, organ-dipped sound with lots of ghostly backing vocals and tremolo'ed guitar. It's true that there isn't anything trailblazing on Damp Face, but that doesn't keep it from sounding terrific. With a live show that's already sent our neighbors up north into conniptions of praise, it's only a matter of time before Portland sees the light. NED LANNAMANN
