Ladada is Josiah Schlater, a Virginia Beach musician who used to play with the mall-punk heroes Mae among other bands. Now he’s doing his own thing, and that thing is whimsical lo-fi garage pop recorded in a storage unit. “Coin Toss,” from Ladada’s forthcoming self-titled EP, is rock ‘n’ roll fun that reminds me of the ’60s crossed with the ’90s, delivered with an immediacy that feels like right now. Listen below.
Ladada is out 8/5 on Gold Robot.
