La Sera - Please Be My Third Eye

Facebook

I was sitting watching the football and lost myself in annoyance (once more) at the way the modern game is heading, so I decided to come and listen to some of the backlog of music instead, time is increasingly at a premium at the minute and I'm not making too much headway into the Christmas backlog. When I do go through the mail sometimes I start at the top, sometimes the bottom, this track was at the top.

Chances are if you read some of the larger US blogs you've already come across La Sera, a side project of Vivian Girls' Katy Goodman...

"Please Be My Third Eye" (I'm not sure if the connotations of third eye are the same in the US?!) is the first preview of her second LP 'Sees the Light', due March 27th on Hardly Art, a short but sweet 50's pop throwback track, which with immediate sunshine hooks, direct and scuzzy guitars complimented by fast-paced beats and Katy's beautifully soft and syrupy vocals is infectious and a perfect Sunday afternoon listen. Nothing new that's for sure, but it's a pretty lovely listen (and free download below) just the same:
