La Sera: Losing to the Dark
Goodman had the following to say of the album: “I wanted the new La Sera record to sound like Lesley Gore fronting Black Flag. I didn’t want it to be another record of me sad, alone in my room. I wanted to have fun playing music and writing songs with a band. We started playing faster, louder and more aggressively,” Goodman says. “I wanted to get that energy onto the album.”
In the summer of 2013, the group decamped to a sweltering studio in East Los Angeles with engineer Joel Jerome and banged out the ten songs that would become Hour of the Dawn “We wanted to make a classic American record,” Wisenbaker says. “The album was inspired by a lot of bands: The Pretenders, Minor Threat, X, The Smiths, The Cars and more.”
The new album arrives May 13th, 2014 on Hardly Art records.
