Itasca: Open to Chance

The music of L.A.-based guitarist, singer, and songwriter Kayla Cohen is mutable and multivalent, richly allusive of the hermetic worlds of private-press canyon-cult mystics and East Coast noiseniks alike. Her adept fingerstyle guitar work - nimble but unshowy, always at the service of framing her plaintively unspooling modal progressions and gorgeous, moonlit voice - centers these melancholy pastorales in a hazy, heat-mirage space equally suggestive of familiarity and distance, community and anomie. Itasca's enchanting, acid folk-inflected PoB debut is also the first to feature a full band.
