I was very excited to see La Sera perform during SXSW. Katy Goodman's solo project is kind of getting brushed off quickly since the next Vivian Girls album is just around the corner, but it is definitely a project that deserves its moment in the spotlight. So it was good to see Goodman get a chance to showcase on her own. Her harmonies have always elevated the songs of the Vivian Girls, and those skills are highlighted on her La Sera album. It's filled with catchy hooks that are made even more infectious coming from Goodman's breathy vocals. I highly recommend giving the album a listen.
Below are some highlight videos from SXSW, including a performance one of my favorite Le Sera tracks "Devils Hearts Grow Gold."
