TONIGHT local Los Angeles songwriter, Nicole Ranalli, will be coming in to the loft to perform under the moniker Lakookala! Starting off as the leading lady in the punk band, Medic Medic, she was inspired from some early recordings she had done solo and decided to venture out on her own. She bought a used drum set to accompany her vocals, which have been compared to PJ Harvey and Corin Tucker, and turned into Lakookala!
The songs from her new release "Songs for Zemean" feature heavy drums, and slightly eerie vocals. Lakookala's style really reminds us of Alison Mosshart from The Kills. With distorted sounds, and aggressive lyrics this record is following along in a girl singer punk vibe that really works. Make sure you come into the loft to see this performance in promotion of the new pink vinyl, and buy the record while you are at it!
