“Devils Hearts Grow Gold”
La Sera, not to be confused with Lia Ices (oh, am I the only one who has been confusing the two?), are releasing a self-titled album on February 15 through Hardly Art. The band, if you must know, features Vivan Girls’ Katy Goodman. There, now your knowledge of La Sera is at least good enough for casual indie conversation.

“Phantoms & Fortune”
“Phantoms & Fortune” is off Bird Names’ forthcoming album Metabolism: A Salute to the Energy of the Sun. The album’s due March 8 on the fresh, new, so-far-really-awesome Northern-Spy Records. We loved their last album, Sings the Browns (released on Upset the Rhythm), so you know, we’ll probably enjoy this one, too.
YAY! On February 26, Little Wings (a.k.a. Kyle Fields) is releasing a new album, Black Grass, on Marriage Records. How come? Exactly. Also check out his recent Daytrotter session here.
“Before I Pass Away”
Monotonix are releasing Not Yet on
Sub Pop Drag City. Album’s due January 25 via K Drag City. It was recorded by Mr. Steve Albino, who has recorded other stuff for Southern Lord Drag City. Anyway, check out this track, “Before I Pass Away,” off the to-be- Slumberland-Drag-City-released Not Yet.
In other news, I miss Gastr Del Sol.
