    A few spins of the album will have much the same effect, and after a while you'll find yourself wishing that Goodman would ditch Vivian Girls and do La Sera full-time--especially if she and Hall can keep making records this wonderful.

    La Sera aren't quite up for that challenge, but their debut finds them rising above the careful posturing of their peers and creating something inarguably lovely, which, for now, will do.

    The album is a promising sweet-treat.

    La Sera is still a solid collection of lush dream pop that is a trip down memory lane worth taking.

    Her newest solo project, La Sera, replaces distortion with light, beatific girl-group harmonies and clean, sweet production of jangling surf guitars and soft brushes of snare drum.

    In contrast to the garage rock of Vivian Girls and the melodic haze of All Saints Day, La Sera brings Goodman's sense of melody and song to the fore in 12 tracks that often hark back to the days of '60s girl groups and Brill Building song craft.

    If the album format is really dying, then Goodman's got a good shot at cornering the market of 21st-century Shangri-La candy pop, but she should do it two minutes at a time.
