Too many so-called solo albums feel like the narcissistic star of the piece is staring into a cracked mirror. They simply don’t stand up. But not so this collection: Sees the Light (also, apparently, an intentional play on words when you speak its title out loud) is a fully accomplished effort. La Sera (“the evening” in Italian) is the alias under which Katy Goodman recorded this record. Goodman has a better-known nickname: as Kickball Katy this Brooklynite came to prominence playing bass for Vivian Girls. Though, tellingly, she also fulfils the same duties in a Slits tribute band.
