The first single from the forthcoming La Sera record — the musical alias of ex-Vivian Girl Katy Goodman — is louder and rowdier than she’s sounded in the past. A marauding batch of buzzsaw guitars rocket up the center of the song as Goodman belts out scalding put-downs at a louse of a lover. The song is a coiled ball of white-hot energy, barreling bravely forward and cresting in a guitar solo that slices like a tight strand of barbed wire.
