This hilarious video launches La Sera, the solo project from Vivian Girls bassist Katy "Kickball Katy" Goodman. In general, this whole crew of girls with blunt fringes are all interconnected: ex-Vivian Girls drummer Frankie Rose also used to drum for Crystal Stilts, and Dum Dum Girls. Her Vivian Girls replacement, Ali Koehler, now drums for Best Coast. I need some kind of mind-map to make this easier.

All in all though, these bands tend to have a similar 60s pop and doo-wop inspired sound, channelled through a lo-fi haze. It's the sweet stuff of summer. Unless of course, it's cheeky and murderous, like this video.
