Itasca: “Marcy Rain” + Upcoming Show
Itasca is the stage name of LA-based artist Kayla Cohen. She plays sparse acid-folk tunes generally aided only by guitar and vox (not to mention the occasional vocal overdub). Her songs are desolate, baroque edifices that Cohen haunts mournfully with a somber alto and carefully plucked strings. For an excellent example check out the tune “Marcy Rain” below, off of her cassette release from last year Grace Riders on the Road (purchasable here). Itasca will be coming through town next week and will perform with tourmate Ivy meadows as well as local favorites Beat Detectives and Robust Worlds at the Eagles Club in South Minneapolis on 12/14.
