Co La

“Egyptian Peaches”

Yesterday on Altered Zones Ken Seeno of Ponytail – and recent creator of this great NNA Tapes release – made a guest post highlighting his friend and fellow Baltimore musician Co La. See the hardcore Cali airbrush image above? There really is something of that captured in this music. A real sheen and shimmer, you might say, if, like, you were a shitty writer.

You can get the Co La tape entitled Rest in Paradise at Watercolor Records.
