(Hollow Earth) The mesmerizing sounds of La Luz remind me of hula-hooping on a yellow beach while slightly buzzed on piña coladas.

It's catchy heartache music to keep you warm and dreaming all winter long. With the Hive Dwellers (the latest project from Olympia's favorite son, Calvin Johnson) and Stickers (top-notch no wave—a longtime Seattle favorite).
