Former Vivian Girl Katy Goodman announced last year that she’s releasing La Sera‘s forthcoming album, Music for Listening to Music To, on March 4 via Polyvinyl and released the first single “High Notes.” Today she shared the music video for it, featuring La Sera in a ’60s variety show with a backdrop of a ranch…along with some unexpected creatures. Watch it below.
La Sera were also added to this year’s Noise Pop Festival lineup and are heading on a short tour in May, which stops by NYC for a show at the newly-reopened Market Hotel on May 11. That’s Katy’s old stomping grounds, where Vivian Girls used to rent a room and practice, as well as playing a few shows there back in the day. Tickets for the Market Hotel show go on sale Friday (1/29) at noon.
In other Katy Goodman/Vivian Girls news, Katy reunited with her former Vivian Girls bandmate Ali Koehler in SNL castmember Aidy Bryant‘s short film Darby Forever, in which Aidy’s character, a fabric store clerk, fantasizes about being a rockstar. Katy and Ali also co-wrote a song for the film with Aidy called “I’m a Bitch.” It comes out on February 16 on Vimeo on Demand. Watch the trailer below.
