Vivian Girls/La Sera's Katy Goodman Announces New Band: Books of Love
As if pulling double duty in La Sera and Vivian Girls wasn't enough, songwriter Katy Goodman has unveiled yet another poppy project, Books of Love.

The new group also features Hush Sound's Greta Morgan, and the they've already released a jangly, '60s-style pop tune called "Space Time." You can check out the track in both an audio stream and the tinfoil-hat-flaunting music video at the bottom of the page.

According to a press release, the twosome came up with the idea behind the band while walking past the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. The very next day, they took to Morgan's rehearsal space to record their "song about physics and love, science and romance, space and time."

"Have you ever felt the lovesick pain of falling for someone from a different dimension? We have too," they wrote of their interplanetary relationship number.

It's unclear at present whether or not the song is a one-off, but Books of Love quipped that they "have plans to tour the Andromeda Galaxy this summer, appear in Bode's Galaxy this fall, and make an appearance at the Omega-Palooza Festival to break up the 2.9 million light-year long trip home."

As for their more down-to-earth activities, Goodman is apparently prepping La Sera's follow up to Sees the Light, and Hush Sound are currently out touring the U.S.
